William Bridges Hunter (February 19,1883 - August 25, 1966) was an American insurance man and erstwhile draughtsman. From 1901 to 1954 he was an employee of the Louisville Title Insurance Co., starting as an office boy and rising to become, in 1938, president of the company. In 1954 he became Chairman of the Board of Directors, and held that position until his death. He appears to have worn many hats on his way up through the business: his 1918 draft registration has his profession listed as ‘vault keeper.’ He was instrumental in compiling drawing the 1907 ‘Louisville Title Co.’s revised map of Louisville, Ky. and environs, and he was credited for having developed the first complete set of property maps for Jefferson County. Hunter appears to have been an athletic youth, competing in the men’s 60 Meters in the 1904 Summer Olympics. Will Hunter ran the 60 metres at the 1904 St. Louis Olympics. Though he did not (as his obituarist claimed) take an Olympic gold, he did also compete in non-Olympic meets and events during the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition. At the YMCA Championship meet, Hunter won the long jump and finished third in the 100 and 220 yds.
