Narrative

N of Cape Evensen, Graham Coast. The name Pointe Marie was applied by FAE, 1903-05, to a point on the coast N of the cape (as then roughly mapped), after Marie Charcot, sister of Dr J.-B. Charcot, Commander of FAE (Charcot, 1906a, map facing p.316). Marie Point (BA chart 1238, ix.1908). Following FAE, 1908-10, the name Pointe Marie was re-applied to the S point of a non-existent island called IÎle Waldeck-Rousseau (Waldeck Peak, q.v.) (Matha and Rey, 1911, Pl.2). Cape Marie (Charcot, [1911b], p.84). Mary Point (BA chart 3175, 9.x.1914). Marie Pynten (HA chart, 1927). Waldeck Rousseau Island, following survey in the area by DI, 1930-31 (Carey and Nelson, 1931a). Survey by BGLE in 1935-36 led to the identification of Waldeck Peak as the "island" of FAE, 1908-10. The name Marie Island was applied to the present feature as the most prominent needing a name in this vicinity (APC, 1955, p.14; DCS 601 sheet 66 64, 1955; BA chart 3570, 29.ix.1961). The island was photographed from the air by FIDASE, 1956-57. Isla Marie (Chile. DNH, 1962, p.183; IHA, 1974, p.194).
