Béla Csejtey Jr., a Hungarian émigré to the United States, was a geologist and historian. 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 a mountain in the Geologists' Range Mount Csejtey in his honor.
