Names that other countries have for this feature:
Glacier 9 mi long, on the E coast of Graham Land, flowing SE into Mill Inlet, to the S of Gould Glacier. First surveyed by the FIDS in 1946-47, and named East Balch Glacier. With West Balch Glacier it was reported to fill a transverse depression across Graham Land, but further survey in 1957 showed that there is no close topographical alignment between the two. The name Balch, for Edwin S. Balch, American Antarctic historian, has been limited to this glacier and an entirely new name (Drummond Glacier q.v.) approved for the west glacier.
