Narrative

A short, broad tributary glacier that flows NE into the lower reaches of Weyerhaeuser Glacier, close W of Mount Solus, in southern Graham Land. Sketched from the air by D.P. Mason of FIDS in Aug. 1947. The lower reaches only were surveyed from the ground by FIDS in Dec. 1958. Named by UK-APC after Thomas H. Sumner (1807-76), American sailor who, in 1837, introduced the position line method of navigation, since developed into standard practice at sea and in the air.
