SW of Cape Andreas, Davis Coast, was roughly charted by AAE, 1951-52, and called Bahía In til [=useless bay] because of its poor holding ground and lack of shelter (Argentina. MM chart KAPPA, 1952; Pierrou, 1970, p.440); photographed from the air by FIDASE, 1956-57, and surveyed from the ground by FIDS from "Portal Point", 1957-58; in association with the names of pioneers of aviation grouped in this area, named after Glenn Curtiss (1878-1930), American aeronautical engineer who developed seaplanes from 1911 onwards (APC, 1960, p.3; BA chart 3560, 7.iv.1961).
