Narrative

A rounded ice-covered mountain (1,500 m) rising from the W flank of Weyerhaeuser Glacier, on the E side of Antarctic Peninsula. The mountain was photographed from the air by the USAS on Sept. 28, 1940. It was roughly surveyed by FIDS in Dec. 1958, and resurveyed in Nov. 1960. Named by UK-APC after Edmund Blunt (1770-1862), American publisher of charts and sailing directions, whose establishment was acquired by U.S. Government to form the nucleus of the U.S. Hydrographic Office (since 1972, the Defense Mapping Agency Hydrographic Center).
