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).
