Description: From Jaggar (1929): "Shishaldin, the great volcano on Unimak Island, was 'flaming high' on May 28, 1929, and glowing matter was overwelling the edge of the crater and rolling down the slopes. On June 17 Shishaldin was quiet though steam was visible when the crater was inspected with field glasses. It was fiery again June 23 and appeared to have opened three new craters low on the north side. On August 4 the summit steam was barely visible to the naked eye."
