Names that other countries have for this feature:
A range of mountains lying along the western shore of McMurdo Sound between Koettlitz Glacier and Ferrar Glacier. Discovered in January 1902 by the NAE, 1901-04. Scott named this range in honour of the Royal Society, giving names of its members to most of the individual peaks. The Royal Society had contributed the sum of £1,000 to the expedition, and its members had assisted on the committee which organised the expedition. The peaks include The Pimple, Mts Lister, Hooker, Rücker, Huggins, Kempe, and Cocks. Mt Lister, 4070m high, is the highest peak in the range.
