Narrative

A range extending south-east from the watershed between the Cotton and Upper Victoria Glaciers to Purgatory Peak, thence north-east to Lizards Foot, 12 miles SSW of Cape Roberts. It is bounded on the north by the upper Cotton, the Miller and the Debenham Glaciers, and on the south by the Upper and Lower Victoria Glaciers and Victoria Valley. Named peaks in the range include Mts Mahony, Harker, Evans, Purgatory Peak and Lizards Foot. Named by the Northern Survey Party of the NZTAE, 1956-58, which established survey stations on Lizards Foot, Purgatory Peak and two unnamed peaks at the north-west end of the range in November 1957. The name was given for St Johns College at Cambridge, England, with which several members of the BAE, 1910-13, were associated during the writing of their scientific reports, and in compnay with the adjacent Gonville and Caius Range.
