Béla Csejtey Jr., a Hungarian émigré in the United States, was a geologist and historian who died in Palo Alto, California in 2012. A refugee from Hungary following the revolution of 1956, Csejtey received his doctorate from Princeton University and spent most of his life working as a geologist, first in Antarctica, and later at the Alaskan branch of the US Geological Survey in Menlo Park, California. The US Board on Geographic Names recognized his distinguished service in Antarctica by naming Mount Csejtey in the Geologists' Range in his honor.
