Names that other countries have for this feature:
Point, surmounted by a peak 525 m high, marking the N side of the entrance to Exasperation Inlet, on the E coast of Graham Land. Sir Hubert Wilkins on a flight of Dec. 20, 1928 photographed what appeared to be an island off the E coast, later charting it in 6630S, 6230W. Subsequent comparison of Wilkins' photographs of this feature with those taken by the FIDS, who charted the coast in 1947, indicate that this point, although considerably N of the position reported by Wilkins, is the feature named by him Foyn Island. The name Foyn Point is given to the SE extremity of this feature. Named for Svend Foyn.
