An article in the June 10, 1902 edition of the Galveston Daily News states "In June, 1900, I observed a black patch several miles in extent on the southern slope of the mountain, extending from the summit down to perhaps 11,000 feet elevation. As it was covered with snow when the mountain was next seen, about the last of September, it seems probable that the bare area was due to material thrown out by the volcano." This report may not constitue a volcanic eruption, however, as a well-known fumarole patch on the southwestern flank of the volcano often appears as bare ground.
Richter and others (1995) report eruptive activity at Mt. Wrangell in 1900.
