Mt. Senger (12,286 ft.)
Named by T.S. Solomons in 1894
"The mountain was named in 1894 by Theodore S.
Solomons for Joachim Henry Senger (1848-1926),
one of the four founders of the Sierra Club.
(Farquhar: Solomons. The other three were
John Muir, Warren Olney, and William D. Armes. See
SCB 10, no. 2, Jan. 1917: 135-4.) Born in Prussia, Senger came to
California in 1882, and was later professor of German and Greek at the
University of California. (Memorial by J. N.
LeConte in SCB 12, no. 4, 1927: 428.) Both
the mountain and the creek are named on the first Mt.
Goddard 30' map, 1912."
