Narrative

NW of Neny Fjord, Marguerite Bay, and separated from Debenham Islands and Fallières Coast by Powell Channel, was roughly charted as a cape by FAE, 1908-10, and called Cap Millerand after Etienne Alexandre Millerand (1859-1943), French statesman and President of the Republic, 1920-24 (Charcot, 1912, Pl.1; Bongrain, 1914, vue 35 following p.60).
