Names that other countries have for this feature:
Low, rocky island in Neny Bay, about 0.4 mi from the mouth of Centurion Glacier, off the W coast of Graham Land. The island was presumably first sighted in 1936 by the BGLE, and was roughly charted by them and by the USAS, 1939-41. It was surveyed in 1946 by the FIDS, who named it for the Port of Beaumont, Texas, ship of the RARE under Ronne, which wintered nearby in Back Bay during 1947.
