Grant Martin Hudson (1868–1955) was a Baptist minister, erstwhile merchant, and member of the Anti-Saloon League who served two terms in the State House of Representatives before he arrived in East Lansing. He was elected city alderman here in 1922, but that same year he won election to the U.S. Congress, representing Michigan’s Sixth District from 1923 to 1931. In later years he was an insurance agent in Lansing and held a succession of lesser appointments in state government. He died at Kalamazoo and was interred at Mount Hope Cemetery in Lansing.[U.S. Congress biography]
