EVENT SPECIFIC INFORMATION

Start:December 1927 Observed

Discredited account - no eruption: BibCard
Eruption Type:Not an eruption.

Description: From Jaggar (1927): "When Dr. Jaggar was at Naknek May 24, 1927, the teacher there, who had been to the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes, reported that a trapper in January, 1927, had seen an ash eruption from one of the Katmai hills, and that two trappers were missing who had gone into that region." However, Hildreth (1983) states: "Published compilations notwithstanding, there are no credible reports of historic eruptions in the Katmai group except at Novarupta in 1912 and at Trident in 1953 - 1968."
