Narrative

Small island which lies close to the E coast of Anvers Island, 3 mi SW of Ryswyck Point, in the Palmer Archipelago. Charted in 1927 by DI personnel on the Discovery, who gave the name Astrolabe Island. To avoid duplication, the name was changed in 1958 by the UK-APC; Dobrowolski Island is named after Antoni B. Dobrowolski (1872-1954), assistant meteorologist of the BelgAE which explored this area in 1898.
