Narrative

A mountain rising to c. 1,300 m in the W part of Bermel Peninsula, Bowman Coast. This mountain appears indistinctly in a photograph taken by Sir Hubert Wilkins on his flight of Dec. 20, 1928. The feature was rephotographed in 1935 by Lincoln Ellwsorth, in 1940 by USAS, and in 1947 by RARE under Ronne. It was surveyed by the FIDS in 1948. Named by Ronne after Maj. Gen. R.C. Wilson, chief of staff to Lt. Gen. Curtis LeMay, head of the Office of Research and Development of the then Army Air Force, which furnished equipment for RARE.
