Summit Signatures

28D Southwell Peak

Location: Riverside County, California

Named South Peak by the USFS as a place holder-it was only meant to temporarily be so named. This was not intended as a geographical reference to the position of this peak to other summits along the Desert Divide. The USFS, USGS and HPS formally sought in 1963 to have it named in honor of Jess M. Southwell, a beloved Ranger at the Lookout on Tahquitz Peak (1946-67). This was disallowed as counter to USBGN policy to never name peaks for living persons.

Name "South" first appears on USFS San Bernardino National Forest map (1959).

Peak was added to the HPS Peak List in 1967.
