Miller and others (1998): "Evidence of more recent volcanism is provided by Snyder (1959), who mapped two dacitic flows on the south and west flanks of the crater that appeared no more vegetated at comparable altitudes than andesite flows produced during a well-documented 1906 eruption on Kanaga Island, 60 km to the west. Snyder (1959, p. 183) argues that these extrusions 'are not older than' the 1906 Kanaga flows, implying that Little Sitkin has erupted at least once during the 20th century."
