An Associated Press article of July 10, 1914, gives an account of an eruption at Shishaldin: "Further details of the tremendous volcanic activity in progress along the Alaskan peninsula west of Seward, and reaching to the Aleutian Islands, were given today by Captain McMullen of the steamer Dirigo, which brought first news of the outburst.
"Observations made by the crew of the Dirigo July 1 showed that a new crater had opened on the north side of Mount Shishaldin, the most westerly of the three peaks reported in eruption. Flowing lava had cut a wide path in the snow for miles down the side of the mountain. A strong westerly wind blew a heavy cloud of smoke from the mountain."
