Daniel Bradford Badger
Daniel was born in Boston, Massachusetts to Erastus Beethoven and Francis Babcock Badger. He started his career as a copper smith and worked his way to owning a copper manufacturing company. The Badger family is well known in the Boston, MA as copper smiths and much of their work can be seen on the towers and tops of many buildings.
Daniel married Elizabeth F. White, born in New Hampshire. He and Elizabeth settled at 12 Prospect St in Winchester, MA where they raised 3 sons. They had a large enough home in 1930 that their house held two of their son's families and servants! Shown is a picture of Daniel from 1924 taken for his trip to England.
