Narrative

rising to c. 50m at E end of South Beaches, Livingston Island, was probably first charted by DI in 1929-31; designated descriptively Black Hill (BA chart 3205, 28.vii.1933). Schwarzer Hügel [=black hill] (Germany. OK chart 1057, 1941). Cerro Negro (Chile. DNH chart L, 1947). Morro Black (Argentina. MM chart ZZ, 1948). Morro Negro (Argentina. MM, 1953, p.218). The nunatak was photographed from the air by FIDASE in 1956-57; in association with the names of nineteenth-century sealers in this area, named Clark Nunatak after Daniel W. Clark, First Mate of the brig Hersilia (Hersilia Cove, q.v.), 1820-21, who was in charge of a sealing gang on South Beaches (APC, 1959a, p.5; DOS 610 sheet W 62 60, 1968).
