20I Hawes Peak

Location: San Bernardino County, California

Name derived from local use. John Robinson contends it was named for Francis M. Hawes who founded the Hawes Ranch in Little Pine Flat adjacent to this peak (ca.1870). Alliteratively, Gudde thinks it was named for Rush 0. Hawes. Both were early settlers, miners and cattlemen in this area. Historians, Pauliena LaFuze, Tom Core, George Kenline and Kendall Stone prefer not to hazard a guess as to which Hawes the peak refers to.

Incorrectly added to the HPS List as elevation 6666'(1961), elevation altered to 6767' (1963), corrected to 6751'(1974).

Name first appears on USFS San Bernardino National Forest map (1961).

Name officially accepted by USBGN (1966).

Peak was added to the HPS Peak List in 1961.
