The collection consists of personal correspondence and some business correspondence dating from 1903 to 1906. At this time Badger was in the employment of former Senator Reed Smoot of Utah, serving as his secretary. A large portion of the correpondence is from senator Smoot while Smoot was conducting business in Utah, primarily Provo. At this time Badger was living in Washington D.C. There is also correspondence from General Authorties of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and leading political figures of that time. The majority of this correspondence is from George Albert Smith. There are also six volumes of scrapbooks compiled by Badger dealing with the investigation of Senator Smoot concerning charges that he was practicing polygamy. This contains articles from newspapers of major cities of the U.S. and not just newspapers from Utah and/or Washington D.C. There are two more scrapbooks that deal with Mormon lifestyle and Utah Republican politics of that time. The journals of Badger's wife, formerly Rose Jenkins, dating from 1895 to 1900 tells of her teaching experiences and with her courtship with Badger.
