This peak's name is misspelled on the USGS 1:63,500 scale "Seward C-5" topographic map. The official name is Bard peak, not Baird Peak. The name "Bard Peak" is in keeping with a theme of naming peaks in the area after famous literary figures, such as Byron, Whittier, Lowell, and the nearby "Shakespeare Shoulder".
