Narrative

A mountain over 1,600 m, standing 4 mi SE of Pilon Peak in the S part of Everett Range. Mapped by USGS from surveys and U.S. Navy aerial photographs, 1960-63. Named for Lt. Calvin Luther Larsen, USN, navigator and photographic officer of USN Squadron VX-6 during Operation Deep Freeze 1969; as a chief photographer's mate, he wintered at Little America V in 1957. Lieutenant Larsen's first name was applied by US-ACAN to avoid a further overuse of the surname Larsen in Antarctic geographic names.
