An Associated Press article of May 16, 1928 states that Shishaldin was erupting on May 15, 1928: "* * * Captain L.W. Perkins, commanding officer of the coast guard cutter Unalga reported that Shishaldin, volcano on Unimak Island, was in a state of eruption.
"The message, which was sent from Dutch Harbor, Alaska, read: 'At one o'clock on the morning of the 15th, the coast guard cutter Unalaga Shishaldin on Unimak Island. At that time the volcano was showing unusual activity, emitting heavy smoke and frequent bursts of flame.'"
From Jaggar (1929): "In 1928 Shishaldin was smoking heavily in August."
