Narrative

A rock headland that forms the northeast entrance of Gaul Cove across the entrance to Gaul Cove from Gibbs Point on the northeast portion of Horseshoe Island, Marguerite Bay, Fallières Coast. The feature was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) for Anthony Walter Wayne, Seaman First Class on the USS Bear, flagship of Admiral Richard Byrd, Commanding Officer, United States Antarctic Service Expedition, 1939-1941. Mr. Wayne?s exemplary service in the U.S. Navy was paramount in being chosen to serve aboard the barkentine-rigged (three or more masts) vessel. He was aboard when the 67- year old ship was icebound for several days. Anthony Walter Wayne was born Anthony Walter Kelczewski, which is how the name appears on the ship?s crew list during the USAS Expedition.
