Narrative

Peninsula, 15 mi long in an E-W direction and 8 mi wide, lying between Cabinet and Mill Inlets on the E coast of Graham Land. It is ice covered except for several rocky spurs which radiate from Mount Hayes. First sighted and photographed from the air in 1940 by members of East Base of the USAS. During 1947 it was charted by the FIDS and photographed from the air by the RARE under Ronne. Named by Ronne for Rep. W. Sterling Cole of New York, member of the House Naval Affairs Committee, which assisted in obtaining Congressional support resulting in procurement of a ship for use by the Ronne expedition.
