Four years later a climax was reached in the geographical history, when, in 1792, Captain Robert Gray, under the American ?ag, discovered and named the Columbia River and Grays Harbor, and Captain George Vancouver, under the British ?ag, discovered and named Puget Sound and many of the surrounding geographical features. Both these explorers respected the names given by the Spaniards so far as they were known, and the names given by Captains Cook and Meares. Since that culminating year of ex ploration, the geographic names have increased rapidly.
