Eruptions of Mount Rainier, 1843, 1854, 1858, and 1870
(Published in 1916)

Excerpt from: Edmond S. Meany, 1916, Mount Rainier, A Record of Exploration, Binfords & Mort, Portland, p.206.

Eruptions Mount Rainier

... That Mount Rainier should still retain so much of its internal heat is not surprising in view of the recency of its eruptions. It is known to have been active at intervals during the last century, and actual record exists of slight eruptions in 1843, 1854, 1858, and 1870. Indian legends mention a great cataclysmal outburst at an earlier perod. ...

Digital version of Meany's publication was found at the
Washington State Secretary of State Website (2007).
