Narrative

rising to c. 1600m SE of Leroux Bay, Graham Coast. The name Mont Chevreux, after douard Chevreux, French zoologist, was applied by FAE, 1908-10, to a feature mapped on the S side of Luke Glacier (Charcot, 1912, Pl. 3; Bongrain, 1914, Vue 20 following p.60) or alternatively to the W extremity of the ridge N of Luke Glacier (Bongrain, 1914, Vue 21 following p.6). Mount Chevreux (Wilkins, 1929, map facing p.374). The BGLE applied the name Mount Chevreux to the feature N of Luke Glacier and this application was followed on charts and in gazetteers (Rymill and others, 1938a, map facing p.86; BA chart 3196, 12.xi.1948; [in 65 40'S 64 00'W] APC, 1955, p.7). Monte Chevreux (Chile. DNH chart LII, 1947; Pierrou, 1970, p.286; Chile. IHA, 1974, p.74). Following air photography by FIDASE in 1956-57, the name Mount Chevreux was applied to the distinctive mountain S of Luke Glacier (APC, 1959a, p.5).
