History
This name was suggested by a 1937 U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) field report that states, "some of the largest bears in Alaska are supposed to be on this (Unimak) I. Although seldom seen along the coast, their tracts are often found in this locality. One such track measured 17 inches long and 11 inches wide." The name was submitted in 1938 by U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) to Board on Geographic Names (BGN).
