The name was adopted in 1965, referring to Ray Zillmer [1887–1960] and his son John, “the only persons known to have ascended the creek of the same name”

James Monroe Thorington [1895–1989] stated that Zillmer and his son in 1947 made the first crossing from “Tête Creek to Canoe River, thence to the N. Thompson and out to Gosnell (C.A.J., XXI, 21). A glacier heading in the only large lateral branch of Tête Creek was named Gilmour Glacier.”
