From Sumner (1952): "In 1950 National Park Service observers discovered at its base [Novarupta's] a small new cone, perhaps fifty feet high, which apparently had been pushed up during a minor outburst of activity observed abut the first of July that year." 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."
