Lt. Otto Von Kotzebue

One of the early explorers for the Russian
government was Lt. Otto Von Kotzebue, who
"discovered" Kotzebue Sound in 1816. Many of the
names in the region like Chamisso Islands, Kotzebue
Sound, Goodhope River, Cape Deceit, and Spafareif
Bay, remain from the extensive surveys conducted by
Kotzebue's crew.
