Feature n.8 in ACAN minutes of 19/06/2000. A peak 2.4 mi ENE of the summit of Mount Bird in NW Ross Island. The feature rises to c. 1400 m. Named by NZGB (2000) after Chris Beeby. Chris Beeby (1935-2000) was a leading New Zealand diplomat and negotiator on Antarctic matters for over 30 years. As Deputy Secretary of Foreign Affairs and Trade, he chaired the international negotiations to establish an Antarctic Minerals regime during the 1980s. A convention was designed to establish clear rules about any minerals related activity which might in the future be proposed for Antarctica, together with strict enviornmental protection measures, which was eventually superseded by the Protocol on environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty. Chris Beeby hosted an international seminar on this work on the Beardmore Glacier in 1982/83, at which NZ's most southerly game of cricket also took place.
