History

Published as "Betchevinskoi cap" by Captain Lutke (1836, p. 315), probably obtained from the Russian American Company pilot, Ingenstrom (complete name not available), who surveyed Atka and Amlia about 1829. Named "Bechevin Cape" by Baker (1906, p. 125); "Bechevin Point" was published by the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) in the 1944 Aleutian Coast Pilot (p.97).
