Narrative

A glacier flowing S from the area around Mount Johnson into Larsen Ice Shelf just W of Shiver Point, on the E coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. The name "Hektoria Fiords" was given by Sir Hubert Wilkins during his flight of Dec. 20, 1928, after the S.S. Following survey by FIDS in 1947, the feature could not be identified; however, during further survey by FIDS in 1955, Wilkins' "long ice-filled fiords" were found to be this glacier and two short unnamed ones.
