Narrative

running NE-SW and rising to 2310m SE of Rymill Bay, Fallières Coast, bounded to NW by Remus and Martin glaciers, to N by Snowshoe Glacier, to NE by Gibbs Glacier, and to S by Lammers Glacier and Windy Valley, and including Mount Cortes and Mount Medina. The existence of this upland was known to USAS, a sledge party from which skirted it on its E side. The upland was surveyed by FIDS from "Stonington Island", on its NW side, in 1948-50 and, on its S and NE sides, in December 1958; in association with the names of pioneers of navigation grouped in this area, named after John Hadley (1682-1744), English mathematician who, at the same time as T. Godfrey (Godfrey Upland, q.v.), independently invented the quadrant (forerunner of the sextant) in 1730-31 (APC, 1962, p.15; DOS 610 sheet W 68 66, 1963).
