Hantke (1955) reports a southern vent eruption from Pavlof in 1886. Jacob and Hauksson (1983) report that this eruption was central, and produced "red glares." This red glare description is very similar to Becker's (1898) description of an eruption that he attributes to 1880. (Perhaps there was only one "red glare" event - in 1880 or in 1886.)
