Graham Island
Graham Island is part of the Haida Gwaii archipelago, and is the largest island in the group, at over 6,000 square km, and second in size only to Vancouver Island.1 It sits North of Moresby Island (Haida Gwaii), the third largest island in British Columbia.
Like Moresby Island, it was named by Prevost in 1853, who was commander of the HMS Virago.2 Prevost named it in honour of Sir James Robert Graham, a key member of Henry George Grey's party.3
