He became associated with the Phelps Dodge interests in 1905, when he came to Douglas to take a position in their employ there as chemist and assayer and having given his entire attention closely to business matters, soon acquired a thorough knowledge of affairs in detail which was readily recognized by those in authority in a substantial manner when he was promoted to his present position. Mr. Colley is a member of the Masons. He was married in June, 1908, to Miss Annie W. Belden, and they have since made their home in Douglas.
