    William Budge
    William Budge
    William Budge (May 1, 1828 – March 1, 1919)[1] was a member of the Council of Fifty as well as the Idaho Legislature and was a mission president and stake president in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).

    Budge was born in Lanark, Scotland but in his teen years moved to Glasgow for employment. At the age of 20 he joined the LDS Church. He became a missionary in 1851 and continued in that position until about 1860. During these years Budge served for a time as president of the Swiss Mission, as district president in Glasgow and five different districts in England, and also preached the gospel in Italy and Germany. Among other assignments, in 1855 the president of the European Mission Franklin D. Richards sent Budge to Saxony to respond to inquires about the LDS Church from Karl G. Maeser.

    In 1860 Budge emigrated to Utah Territory. He later moved to Bear Lake County, Idaho. From 1878 to 1880 Budge was president of the European Mission, and in 1877 as well as in 1870 to 1906 he served as president of the Bear Lake Stake.[1] From 1906 to 1918 Budge was the president of the LDS Church's Logan Utah Temple.

    Budge also served as a member of the Idaho Legislature.

    One of the Helaman Halls at Brigham Young University is named for Budge.

    Histories
    William Budge in Brief
    William Budge in Brief
    After his conversion to Mormonism in Scotland at the end of 1848, William Budge spent nine years (April 20, 1851 to May 10, 1860) as a missionary in England, Switzerland and Germany. Then in 1860 he came to Utah, where he spent ten years prior to his assignment to Paris, Idaho. He served as Bear Lake stake president , and, after an absence on another European mission from 1878 to 1880, eventually became recognized as spokesman for Idaho’s large Mormon population. When Idaho was admitted as an anti-Mormon state, he led the opposition to constitutional restrictions that prevented the Latter Day Saints from voting, holding office, or serving on a jury. Before Mormons were excluded from politics, he had legislative experience e in the territorial Council to which he was elected in 1880; after the Saints were readmitted to public life, he was chosen a Bear Lake county senator in 1898. Finally in 1906 he became president of Logan temple. One of his sons, Alfred Budge, [son of William and second wife Eliza Pritchard] served for many years as a district judge and on the Idaho supreme Court. One of Alfred’s sons, Hamer Budge, represented Idaho in Congress before his appointment as chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

    --Idaho State Historical Society Reference Series, No 539, 1971

    While a missionary in England, William met and married Julia Stratford, sister of Lucetta Stratford.

    On December 16-17, 1904, William Budge and Charles W. Penrose testified before the United States Senate in the Smoot Hearings (1903-1906). Elected Utah senator Reed Smoot faced a challenge to his right to occupy his Senate seat. Those opposed to Smoot asserted that plural marriages continued to take place Post-Manifesto and that the Mormon church condoned the practice. Senator Smoot was not a polygamist, but he was a Mormon apostle. Idaho Senator Fred Dubois and others questioned Budge.
