Narrative

A small valley, ice free except for a lobe of ice marginal to Taylor Glacier at the mouth, located W of Finger Mountain in the Quartermain Mountains, Victoria Land. The name appears to be first used on a 1961 New Zealand Lands and Survey Department map compiled from New Zealand field surveys, 1957-60, and USN aerial photographs of that period. Presumably named after Thomas Kennar, RN, Petty Officer on the Discovery during the BrNAE, 1901-04, led by R.F. Scott. In November 1903, Kennar and William J. Weller (Mount Weller, q.v.) accompanied Hartley T. Ferrar in the first geological reconnaissance of Quartermain Mountains.
