Narrative

The northern of two glaciers flowing E from the plateau upland into the head of Trail Inlet, on the E coast of Graham Land. This glacier was used by the sledge party under Paul H. Knowles which traversed Antarctic Peninsula from the East Base of the USAS on its way to Hilton Inlet in 1940. Named by the USAS for a lead dog that died at this point. The name has been approved because of its wide use on maps and in reports.
