Narrative

Prominent ice-covered cape 5.5 mi NNE of the summit of Mount Nicholas, marking the E side of the entrance to Schokalsky Bay on the NE coast of Alexander Island. First seen from a distance by the FrAE under Charcot in 1909, but charted as part of a small island. Photographed from the air in 1937 by the BGLE under Rymill, and later roughly mapped from the photos. Surveyed from the ground in 1948 by Colin C. Brown, FIDS surveyor at Stonington Island, 1948-49, for whom the cape is named.
