Description: Jones (1951) reports that minor ash showers and fume emissions occurred during 1951 from Gareloi. Simkin and Siebert (1994) report that this eruption began in 1950 and continued until 1951. Jones (1952) reports that Gareloi was "weakly active during 1950," and "quieter during 1951."

A May 3, 1950 Fairbanks Daily News article suggests that at least some of this activity was not an eruption: "Rear Admiral F.D. Wagner, USN, commander, Alaskan sea frontier, has received information from a naval vessel, the USS Bagaduce, that the volcano on Gareloi island, about 60 miles west of Adakin the Aleutians appears to be active. The Bagaduce sighted large vapor clouds rising to seven thousand feet and drifting southeast at that level."
