William W. Potter (1869–1940) had a distinguished, forty-year career in Michigan politics, having been state senator, gubernatorial candidate, and attorney general. In 1928 he was elected to the Michigan Supreme Court, and served a term as Chief Justice in 1935. Potter died while still on the bench of injuries sustained in an auto accident.
The Potter house is slated for demolition as part of a $148 million redevlopment project, along with houses to the north and south. A three-story, twelve unit condominium building is planned in their place.
