Narrative

A gently-sloping glacier 15 mi long and 4 mi wide, flowing eastward from the plateau escarpment to join Hektoria Glacier between Shiver Point and Whiteside Hill, on the E coast of Graham Land. Discovered by Sir Hubert Wilkins in an aerial flight, Dec. 20, 1928, and named Evans Inlet by him for E.S. Evans of Detroit. A further survey by the FIDS in 1955 reported that this low-lying area is not an inlet, but is formed by the lower reaches of Hektoria Glacier and the feature now described.
