Narrative

A mostly ice-free mountain, 2563 m, which forms the N end of Lashly Mountains near the polar plateau of Victoria Land. Named by US-ACAN (2007) after Ronald G. Koger, from 1992-98 the Project Director of Antarctic Support Associates (ASA), the primary civilian support contractor to the United States Antarctic Program (USAP). In 1992 the USAP embarked on a significant transition in method of operations by converting the support functions previously provided by the U.S. Navy's Operation Deep Freeze to civilian contractor service. Koger oversaw ASA's role in this transition from 1992 through 1998.
