N entrance point of Casey Inlet, Wilkins Coast, was probably seen from the air by Wilkins, 20 December 1928. On the basis of radio despatches from Wilkins in the Antarctic, the name Miller Point, after George E. Miller (d. 1934), newspaper proprietor of Detroit, Mich., was applied to the W point of Wilkins' Scripps Island (Scripps Heights, q.v.) (AGS, 1929a, map p.308), but on his return Wilkins applied the name to a point on the NE side of his Scripps Island, c. 15km SE of Cape Mayo (q.v.) (Wilkins, 1929, map facing p.374 and p.376; BA chart 3175, 7.vii.1933). Following study of Wilkins' air photographs of the area, Joerg applied the name Miller Point to the present feature (Joerg, 1937, map facing p.444; [in 68°56'S 63°20'W] USBGN, 1947, p.201; [in 68°56'S 63°23'W] APC, 1955, p.15; DCS 601 sheet 68 62, 1955; [co ordinates corrected] DOS 610 sheet W 68 62, 1963; APC, 1977, p.23). The point was roughly surveyed from the ground by USAS in 1940 and resurveyed by FIDS RARE from "Stonington Island" in November 1947. Punta Miller (Chile. DNH chart I, 1947; Pierrou, 1970, p.521). The point was further surveyed by BAS from "Horseshoe Island" and "Stonington Island", 1960-62. Mys Miller (Soviet Union. MMF chart, 1961).
