Jaggar (1932): "A mountain to the west of Kanatak was reported fuming in March 1929, and this description might apply to Chiginagak."
However, Miller and others (1998) report that the 1929 eruption of Chiginagak was "based on a brief newspaper account of "unusual activity" at Chiginagak and 6 other volcanoes observed by the crew of a ship which probably passed no closer than 25 km." The December 14, 1929 Associated Press article does not provide further information on Chiginagak, except to say that it is "also on the mainland near Katmai."
Simkin and Siebert (1994) report the eruption as a questionable eruption in December, 1929.
