Biography[edit]

Charles Aaron Budlong was born on July 8, 1859 in Frankfort, New York,[1] the son of John Aaron Budlong (1828–1859) and Julianna (Meyers) Budlong (1828–1888).[2] He moved to Black Earth, Wisconsin as a child.[3]

His first job was as a telegraph operator for the Milwaukee Road railroad in Amberg.[4] He then served as an immigration inspector for three years and a state board of control inspector for eight years, followed by four years as sheriff of Marinette County, Wisconsin.[4] Budlong was a member of the Wisconsin State Assembly three times: first from 1915 to 1916, second from 1927 to 1934, and third from 1937 to 1940. He was also a delegate to the 1936 Republican National Convention.
