A glacier approximately 13km long and 4km wide, flowing northeast into upper Taylor Glacier between Depot Nunatak and the northwest end of Quartermain Mountains, in Victoria Land. Feature depicted on: NZ AntTopo50-MF07
The descriptive names "South-West Arm" and "South Arm" were applied to this glacier and to the part of Ferrar Glacier S of Knobhead, respectively, by the British National Antarctic Expedition (BrNAE), 1901-04. Subsequent mapping has shown that the glacier described here is part of the Taylor Glacier system. Named by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) in 1992 after William A. Cassidy, Department of Geology and Planetary Science, University of Pittsburgh, who in 13 field seasons, 1976-90, led U.S. Antarctic Research Program (USARP) teams in the investigation and collection of Antarctic meteorites from diverse sites through Victoria Land and southward to Lewis Cliff, adjacent to Queen Alexandra Range.
