Narrative

A conspicuous mountain (1,970 m) with precipitous black rock cliffs on its W side, rising at the S side of Hariot Glacier, 3 mi E of Briggs Peak, on the W side of Antarctic Peninsula. First roughly surveyed by BGLE in 1936-37. Photographed by RARE in Nov. 1947 (trimetrogon air photography). Surveyed by FIDS in 1958. Named by UK-APC after Edmund Gunter (1581-1626), English mathematician whose "line of numbers" (1617) was the first step toward a slide rule; in 1620 he published tables of logarithm sines and tangents which revolutionized navigation.
