In 1903, Robert Dunn, reporter of the "New York Commercial Advertiser," with F. A. Cook, named a high mountain "Mount Hunter," in honor of his aunt Anna Falconnet Hunter, 1885-1941, who financed his trip. R.W. Porter, USGS, in 1906, mistakenly applied the name to this peak, about 9 miles northwest of the one named by Dunn. Cook, in 1905, may have named this mountain "Mount Disston" for his friend Henry Disston. See Mount Huntington. Some members of Cook's 1906 party referred to this mountain as "Little McKinley" and the prospectors in the Yentna district to the south called it "Mount Roosevelt" for Theodore Roosevelt. The first ascent of Mount Hunter was July 5, 1954, by Fred Beckey, Heinrich Harrer, and Henry Meybohm (Farquhar, 1959, p. 222, 223).
