Narrative

A conspicuous monolith 3 mi ENE of Cape Evensen on the W coast of Graham Land. The FrAE (1903-05) under Jean B. Charcot charted a cape in this area which they named for French statesman Pierre Waldeck-Rousseau. On re-exploring this area, the FrAE (1908-10) under Charcot sighted the feature from Pendleton Strait, 25 mi distant, and charted it as an island near the coast. Correlating its work with that of Charcot, the BGLE under John Rymill charted this portion of the coast by land and from the air in 1935. Waldeck-Rousseau Peak as here applied is in accord with the interpretation of the BGLE.
