A newspaper account from August 15, 1910, describes an eruption of Shishaldin: "The steamer Corwin has arrived from Nome [to Seward] with the report that Mount Shishaldin, the highest volcanic peak in the Unimak Islands, is again in eruption. Officers of the Corwin say that when they passed the island a few days ago the volcano was more active than during the former eruption.
"A great column of fire shot high into the air and volumes of smoke poured from the crater. The snow which at the time of the previous eruption had not melted far from the crater has entirely disappeared from the sides of the mountain. The Corwin was covered with volcanic ashes."
