Biography:William Wallace Blackney (August 28, 1876-March 14, 1963) was a politician from the U.S. state of Michigan.

Blackney was born in Clio, Michigan, and attended the public schools there. He went to Olivet College, Olivet, Michigan, and Ferris School, Big Rapids, Michigan. He moved to Flint, Michigan, in 1904 and served as county clerk of Genesee County 1905-1912. He was graduated from the law department of the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor in 1912, was admitted to the bar the same year, and commenced practice in Flint.

In 1934, Blackney defeated incumbent Claude E.
