History
Apparently a corruption of "Vavilof," as the bay was named "Vavilofskaia Gavan" by Father Veniaminov, in 1840 (v. 1, p. 258). In 1872 W. H. Dall, U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) called it "New Harbor;" Atwood (1911, p. 21) U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), wrote of "Baralof" or "Squaw Harbor."
