Narrative

Fue cartografiado por el FIDS y aerofotografiado por el RARE en 1947. El FIDS lo llamó East Gould Glacier por el apellido del capitán de corbeta Rupert T. Gould, historiador polar y cartógrafo británico. El nombre actual corresponde al apellido del biólogo Guillermo Mann Fischer, experto en ballenas del Ministerio de Agricultura de Chile, quien participó en la Expedición Antártica Chilena de 1947, a bordo del transporte "Angamos" de la Armada de Chile. Glaciar de aproximadamente 13 millas de largo, situado al W del glaciar Aagaard y que fluye hacia el SE en dirección a la ensenada Mill, en la costa E de Tierra de O'Higgins.
