Narrative

Group of pillar-shaped rocks, lying 3 mi N of Tower Island in the Palmer Archipelago. The name Kendall Group appears NW of this position on a chart based upon work by a British expedition under Cdr. Henry Foster, RN, 1828-31, but it was later found that no islands exist there. The name Kendall Rocks has subsequently been applied to these pillar-shaped rocks discovered in 1838 by a French expedition under Capt. Jules Dumont d'Urville. Named for Lt. E.N. Kendall of Foster's expedition ship, the Chanticleer.
