History

Named by members of the American Geographical Society of 1941 (Field, 1947, pl. 1), because in 1926 B. S. Wood and W. O. Field found a seal blind built by the Indians on the island. The name of this island was published as Muir Island by U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) on Chart 8306 in 1942.
