Louis Will (b. 1857 - d. 1932) was Progressive Party mayor of Syracuse during 1914-16. He was the only third party candidate elected mayor of Syracuse in the last century.[1] In a year with low voter turnout, Will was elected with only 9,858 votes.[2]

Son of German immigrants Anton and Rosina Will, he left school early after his father's death to run the family candle-making business, eventually known as Will & Baumer.[3]

His home, the Louis Will House, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009. It is a large Queen Anne style brick house that has Tiffany windows and stands out in its neighborhood.
