During the years 1913 to 1919 (the years of the National Geographic Society expeditions to the Katmai National Monument), Trident Volcano was often observed to be "smoking" or "steaming." Eicher and Rounsefell (1957) report a "lighter" eruption in the Katmai area in September, 1913. This eruption may have occurred at Trident.
However, Hildreth (1983) disbelieves this account: "Published compilations notwithstanding, there are no credible reports of historic eruptions in the Katmai group except at Novarupta in 1912 and at Trident in 1953 - 1968."
