Names that other countries have for this feature:
A majestic mountain range, about 80km long and rising to 3070m at Timber Peak. The range rises between Reeves Névé on the west, Reeves Glacier on the south, and Priestley Glacier on the north and east, in Victoria Land. The range is flat topped and descends gradually to Reeves Névé, but is steep cliffed and marked by sharp spurs along Priestley Glacier.
The range was probably observed by most early expeditions due to its prominence as viewed from the Ross Sea. It was mapped in detail by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from surveys and U.S. Navy (USN) air photos, 1955-63. Named by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) for Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was President of the United States in 1954, at the time when the U.S. Navy's Operation Deep Freeze expeditions to Antarctica were initiated.
