rising to 1915m between Airy Glacier and Mount Timosthenes, Fallières Coast, was photographed from the air by RARE, 27 November 1947. Following survey by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in December 1958 and in association with the names of pioneers of navigation grouped in the area, this name was applied in error to Mount Timosthenes (q.v.) after Petrus Peregrinus de Maricourt (fl. 1275), French crusader and scientist, author of Epistola de magnete (1269), the first scientific treatise on the magnet (APC, 1962, p.25); later applied to the present fea- ture (APC, 1974, p.5; USGS sketch map Palmer Land (North Part), 1979).
