Narrative

Peak at the E side of Widmark Ice Piedmont, midway between Stair Hill and Rugg Peak on the W coast of Graham Land. Charted by the BGLE under Rymill, 1934-37. Named by the UK-APC in 1959 for Sir William Crookes (1832-1919), English chemist and physicist whose pioneer work on the optical properties of tinted glass in 1909-13 led to the design of the first satisfactory snow goggles and the prevention of snow blindness.
