Narrative

The eastern point of Currituck Island, in the Highjump Archipelago. The name "Mohaupt Island" was given by US-ACAN in 1956 to the northern portion of Currituck Island, then thought to be a separate feature. Subsequent Soviet expeditions (1956-57) found that feature to be part of Currituck Island and US-ACAN has reapplied the name to the point described. Named for H.E. Mohaupt, air crewman on USN Operation HighJump photographic flights in this area in 1946-47.
