Narrative

An island 2 mi long, which lies immediately N of Cape Evensen, Graham Land. The name "Pointe Marie," after the elder sister of Dr. Jean B. Charcot, was applied by the FrAE (1903-05) to a point on the coast close N of Cape Evensen. After the FrAE (1908-10) Charcot re-applied the name to the S tip of an island, "Ile Waldeck-Rousseau," in approximately the same latitude. Correlating its survey with those of Charcot, the BGLE (1934-37) identified "Ile Waldeck-Rousseau" as Waldeck-Rousseau Peak on the mainland. The most prominent feature near the peak requiring a name is the island described. The name Marie Island for this feature preserves Charcot's naming in the locality.
