Named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) for Bill McAfee, who completed two decades of USAP service in support of scientific research. He managed the Computer and Information Technology Infrastructure at South Pole during his decades of service where he deployed to the South Pole 13 times (including two winter overs). During these deployments, he dramatically expanded the station's IT and communications infrastructure while providing world-class technical support to a station population of over 200 scientists and contractors. Beyond official duties, McAfee constantly sought outreach opportunities including initiating the collaboration among Google, NSF, and the Polar Geospatial Center that greatly enhanced the imagery of the south polar region.
