Victor was named in honor of George Victor Sherwood, the mail carrier between the south end of Teton Valley, Idaho, and Jackson, Wyoming, near the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. With mail on his back, Sherwood walked, skied or rode his horse over Teton Pass to make his delivery to Jackson Hole. The arduous journey took several days, and Sherwood is remembered for courageously carrying the mail between Victor and Jackson when there was neither bear spray nor avalanche control.
