Names that other countries have for this feature:
The westernmost point of Booth Peninsula, lying 0.3 mi N of the eastern portion of Thomas Island. The name "Draves Island" was given by US-ACAN in 1956 to the western portion of Booth Peninsula, then thought to be a separate feature. Subsequent Soviet Expeditions (1956-57) found that feature to be part of Booth Peninsula and US-ACAN has reapplied the name to the point described. Named for Dale Draves, air crewman on the USN Operation HighJump seaplane commanded by D.E. Bunger which landed in this area and obtained aerial and ground photographs in February 1947.
