Narrative

A line of steep, east-facing bluffs about 15 mi long which extend WNW from the mouth of Newcomer Glacier in the Sentinel Range, Ellsworth Mountains. The N end of the feature was photographed by Lincoln Ellsworth on his trans-Antarctic flight of Nov. 23, 1935. The bluffs were mapped by USGS in 1961 from air photos obtained by U.S. Navy Squadron VX-6 in 1959. Named by US-ACAN for the Hon. George P. Miller, former chairman of the House Science and Astronautics Committee, whose great interest in Antarctic activities was of assistance in assuring successful completion of U.S. research of that continent, 1958-72.
