Narrative

(Chile. DNH chart LI, 1947); following air photography by FIDASE, 1956-57, and in association with the names of pioneers of medicine grouped in this area, named after Lazaro Spallanzani (1729-99), who in 1780 first interpreted the process of digestion (APC, 1960, p.7; BA chart 3560, 7.iv.1961). Punta Harry (Chile. DNH chart 1400, 1961; IHA, 1974, p.149).
