Georges Clemenceau (1841-1929) was a French political figure. Known as “The Tiger,” he served twice as premier of France (1906-1901, 1917-1920) and was instrumental in writing the terms of the Versailles Treaty.

In 1892 Arthur Coleman called this peak Pyramid Mountain. The current name was bestowed in 1919 by the Alberta-BC Boundary Commission.
