mountain range, extends in an arc 650 mi. from Iliamna Lake at SW end to White River in Canada at SE end; highest point is Denali.

The name "Alaskan Range" appears to be first applied to these mountains in 1869 by Dall (1870, p. 286). The name eventually became "Alaska Range" through local use. In 1849 Constantin Grewingk applied the name "T schigmit" to this mountain range. "A map made by the United States Land Office, 1869, calls the southwestern part of the Alaska Range Chigmit mountains and the northeastern part Beaver mountains" (Baker, 1906, p. 176).
