Description: Coats (1964) writes about Pavlof: "Reported as quite active for about a year. Probably Strombolian phase." (July 1962-June 1963).

Jacob and Hauksson (1983) report that this eruption began around 1960 and continued until sometime in 1963, and consisted of mild ash eruptions and lava flows.

Dr. Kenneth Morin took photographs of ash and steam erupting from Pavlof on May 28, 1960. These images are viewable on the World Wide Web at: http://www.avo.alaska.edu/volcanoes/volcact.php?volcname=Pavlof&page=images&eruptionid=210 .
