January 1, 1890 Alfred S. Proctor started Denver Tent & Awning Company on January 1, 1890. Ten Cornell University graduates each invested in the company. Mr. Proctor successfully directed the company for over 40 very prosperous years.
1939 - 1966 The company merged with the Brooks Company but retained the Denver Tent name. In 1945, the Denver Tent & Awning Company was sold to Ralph Avery, a Federal Inspector of War Plant Production. The company was sold to Medalist Industries in 1966 and again to Ernie Hagler, an icon in the tent-fabric industry, in 1969. Ernie owned the business for over 22 years. A few of Ernie’s employees are still with the company and speak fondly of his personable nature and leadership skills. In the early 1990’s, the company shortened its name to Denver Tent Company, reflecting a change in manufacturing focus.
