Historical NoteReturn to Top

Robert Rafael "Bus" Hatch and his brothers Alton and Tom began boating in the Vernal, Utah, area in the late 1920s. They ran the Green River in 1931, the Green and Colorado through Cataract Canyon in 1933, and the Grand Canyon in 1934. In 1935-36, they ran the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, as well as the Main Salmon. By the end of World War II, Bus Hatch in particular had become known as a river runner. With the controversy over the planned Echo Park Dam in Dinosaur National Monument in the late 1940s and early 1950s, many people turned to Bus Hatch and his sons, Don, Ted, and Frank, to take them down the Green and Yampa Rivers. During the controversy, Hatch River Expeditions outfitted river trips for both pro-dam and anti-dam groups, trips that often included over 100 people. This was the true genesis of Hatch River Expedtions. After the controversy, and through the 1960s, the name Hatch became synonymous with river running, especially in the western United States. By the end of the 20th century, Hatch had become one of the best-known river outfitters in existence.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Hatch River Expeditions photograph collection consists of two parts: eleven photos donated in the 1980s, and a much larger addendum donated in 2003, which contains 1280 photos. The few photos in the original collection were both color and black and white prints, including some river running shots, and some family photographs. The 2003 addendum includes large numbers of color 2x2 inch tranparencies, taken by Don Hatch, as well as many 35mm color slides, and both black and white and color prints taken by various photographers, including other members of the family; passengers on river trips; and friends of the family. The dates range from the 1930s through the late 1980s.
