Abstract:

A double collection of the papers of James Elisha Babb, a lawyer prominent in Idaho politics and of his father-in-law, Charles Johnson Tinkham.

Babb's correspondence which was devoted largely to politics included both local and nationally prominent figures. Among the most important were William E. Borah with whom he corresponded from 1898 to 1933 on issues such as women's suffrage, the League of Nations and the Roosevelt Administration, and William Jennings Bryan who wrote between 1880 and 1924. Of particular interest are Bryan's early letters explaining his reasons for entering politics and his letters in the 1920s defending fundamentalist Christianity. Charles Johnson Tinkham's papers are significant for his own Civil War letters and those from his fellow soldiers and officers in the Union Army. Included also in his papers are miscellaneous official documents relating to his war service and an autograph collection.
