Names that other countries have for this feature:
A majestic mountain range, about 45 mi long and rising to 3,070 m, which rises between Reeves Neve on the west, Reeves Glacier on the south, and Priestley Glacier on the north and east, in Victoria Land. The range is flat topped and descends gradually to Reeves Neve, but is steep cliffed and marked by sharp spurs along the Priestley Glacier. The range was probably observed by most early expeditions due to its prominence as viewed from the Ross Sea. It was mapped in detail by USGS from surveys and USN air photos, 1955-63. Named by US-ACAN for Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was President of the United States in 1954, at the time when the U.S. Navy's Operation Deep Freeze expeditions to Antarctica were initiated.
