Walter M. Hatch was President of the Colorado Springs Investment and Improvement Company. This folder contains his correspondence during the year 1886.

The Colorado Springs Investment and Improvement Company was formed at Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1883 to create an endowment fund for the support and maintenance of Colorado College. This was the 'plan' of Colorado College President E.P. Tenney to accept the property of the Colorado College Land Company for bonding purposes. The Colorado College Land Company had been incorporated on March 6, 1882, with Tenney as the principal stockholder. Tenney's land development plan collapsed in 1884 which led to his removal as president of Colorado College and years of legal difficulties for the College.
