Albert Sleeper (1862-1934), who served in the Michigan State Senate and as governor, cofounded the bank with his uncle A. W. Merrell, taking sole ownership in 1900. Sleeper owned several other banks and extensive real estate. Sleeper and his wife, Mary Moore, set up a library in the space above the bank in 1908.
