From Kisslinger (1983), translating Doroshin (1870): "In the summer of 1852, I proceeded from here on a southwesterly course along the eastern coast of the Alaskan Peninsula. At approximately 57 degrees 31 minutes latitude, 155 degrees 55 minutes longitude, I saw rising from behind a mountain the crater of Mt. Peulik. * * * I saw only smoke, coming from the south side of the crater. There are petroleum sources nearby. When portaging from Lake Iz'iagyk to the lake from which the Ugashik River flows [i.e., Upper Ugashik Lake], one must pass near this volcano. I would like to suggest that Mt. Peulik is identical with the mountain that is called 'Bocharov' on maps." Miller (2004) qualifies this report, stating: "Because Mount Peulik is separated from other prominent active volcanic edifices in the region [see fig. 1 in original text], these reports [of activity in 1814 and 1852] are credible and may represent the most recent eruptions at the center."
