Narrative

A large glacier in central Sentinel Range, Ellsworth Mountains, draining the E slopes of Mount Anderson and Long Gables and flowing generally SE for 22 mi to Barnes Ridge, where it leaves the range and enters S.-flowing Rutford Ice Stream. First mapped by USGS from surveys and USN air photos, 1957-59. Named by US-ACAN for Lt. Col. Cicero J. Ellen, USAF, who was in command of many of the air operations when the South Pole Station was established by air drop in the 1956-57 season.
