Jaggar (1932) reports: ""Captain Nelson saw fire issuing from Bogoslof October 31, 1931, and found quantities of pumice near Umnak Island south of it. This observer believed Bogoslof to be continually smoking, according to his experience, but the 'fire' was unusual."
In 1934, further mention is made of Bogoslof. Hunnicutt (1943) reports that "In 1934 Bogosloff was visited by a scientific party form the Coast Guard vessel Chelan. When the men went on shore they feared the island would explode beneath their feet, but the scientist with them explained that the only live part of the island, volcanically speaking, was one peak named McCullock Peak which smoked continually at that time, and beyond this peak, on the opposite shore of the island, was a fissure visible at low tide. When the tide came in, steam and gas would rise out of this crevice and bubble and steam on the surface of the sea."
