|Eruption Type:||Not an eruption.|
From Miller and others (1998): "Mount Martin, venting a prominent steam plume, was first photographed in 1913 but erroneously called Mt. Katmai (Griggs, 1922). In 1915, Griggs (1922) recognized that the mountain was an unknown, fumarolically active volcano west of Mount Mageik and named it in honor of George C. Martin, who was the first to visit and describe the Katmai area following the 1912 eruption.
"Numerous reports of activity from Mount Martin are contained in the literature. Sapper (1927) reported strong 'smoke' clouds from Mount Martin during the period 1913-1919; Griggs (1922) who explored the area during that time, mentioned only steam." The persistent and conspicuous steam plume present at Mt. Martin does not constitute a volcanic eruption.
