Narrative

A large glacier, about 100 mi long and 10 mi wide, between Bowers Mountains on the W and Concord and Anare Mountains on the E, flowing to Ob' Bay on the coast and forming the Lillie Glacier Tongue. The glacier tongue was discovered by the BrAE, 1910-13, and named for Dennis G. Lillie, biologist on the Terra Nova. The name Lillie has since been extended to the entire glacier as it is now known. The lower half of the glacier was plotted by ANARE (Thala Dan), 1962, which explored the area and utilized air photos taken by USN Operation Highjump, 1946-47. The whole feature was mapped by USGS from surveys and U.S. Navy air photos, 1960-62.
