Narrative

Glacier, 1.5 mi wide and 8 mi long, which flows S to enter Bigourdan Fjord opposite The Narrows, on the W coast of Graham Land. First roughly charted by the BGLE, 1934-37, under Rymill. The lower reaches of the glacier were surveyed in 1948-49 by the FIDS, and named by them for Harry F. Reid (1859-1944), professor of geology at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, noted for his studies of glacier flow and stratification in Alaska and the Alps.
