Narrative

highest point (c.1200m) on Liard Island, Loubet Coast, was roughly charted by FAE, 1903-05, and later the name Sommet Gaudry after A. Gaudry (Mount Gaudry, q.v.) was erroneously applied collectively to this mountain and to Glen Peak (q.v.) (Bongrain, 1914, vue 26 following p.60); photographed from the air by RARE in 1947-48 and by FIDASE, 1956-57 and surveyed from the ground by FIDS from "Detaille Island", 1958-59; in association with the names of glaciologists grouped in this area, named Mount Bridgman after Percy Williams Bridgman (1882-1961), American physicist who discovered the highpressure forms of ice; Nobel Laureate in physics, 1946; Professor of Physics, Harvard University, 1950-54 (APC, 1960, p.3; BA, 1976, p.3; BAS 250P sheet SQ 19-20/10, 1-DOS 1979). Mount Bridgeman [sic] (BA, 1961, p.190). Monte Bridgman (Argentina. AA, 1991, p. 9)
