"Chester Versteeg (1887-1963), lawyer, businessman, lecturer, and author,
who devoted much of his life to furthering interest in the Sierra Nevada.
(BGN decision, 1964.) Versteeg had a strong interest in place names. He did
much original research on the origin of Sierra Nevada names. Many of the
names he suggested are now on the maps; many more were rejected by the US
Board on Geographical Names. The first edition of the 15-minute quad, 1956, does
not have the name on it. The peak is on the crest, just west of 'Lake Helen of
Troy' -- which was named by Versteeg."
- Peter Browning, Place Names of the Sierra Nevada
Versteeg was an alumni of the University of Southern California, thus the names
Lake Helen of Troy and Trojan Peak.
