From Siebert and Simkin (2002-, accessed March 23, 2007): "[R]eports of historical eruptions at Kukak from Hantke (1959) appear to be erroneous. The report of a 1951 eruption is an apparent reference to a July 22, 1951 ashfall at Kukak Bay, which was attributed by Muller and others (1954) to Martin volcano." Miller and others (1998) doubt that Martin has had any historic eruptions either, stating: "all reports of eruption or ash emission [from Martin] are probably spurious, reflecting only the persistent and conspicuous steam plume."
Hantke (1959): Kugak "probably had an ash eruption in 1951." The July 22 date appears to belong to an event in 1953 (Muller and others, 1954; Hantke, 1959) rather than this 1951 event.
