May 12, 1934: A set of three panorama photos were taken from this lookout.
November 20, 1936: "E.L. Macauley, Chief of Fish and Game Patrol gave great credit to Claire Wright, a lookout on Van Bremmer Peak in the Shasta, for spotting spot-light hunters from his tower room. About the middle of the night Wright was awakened by beams of a flashlight. After hearing a shot he took up the chase and secured enough evidence in the way of wire and battery clips to make the case certain. He overtook two hunters, arrested them and locked them in the basement of the tower until the warden came for them. The judge gave them a fine." (California Ranger)
