Isolated chain of three predominantly snow-covered mountain masses, rising to 1, 450 m at Mount McArthur, extending S from Schubert Inlet for 25 mi in Alexander Island. First seen from the air by Lincoln Ellsworth on Nov. 23, 1935, and roughly mapped from photos obtained on that flight by W.L.G. Joerg. Resighted from the air by the USAS in 1940, and in 1947 by the RARE under Ronne. Ronne named the mountains after Lt. Col. R.C. Walton, USMC, of the Office of Naval Research, who was instrumental in obtaining the loan of a ship from the Navy and in securing Navy assistance for the Ronne expedition.
