Narrative

in Ronne Ice Shelf between Berkner Island and Korff Ice Rise, rising to c. 250m, was roughly indicated as a peninsula by a US IGY party from "Ellsworth Station", 1957-58, although the possibility of its being an island was not excluded; called Malville Peninsula after J. McKim Malville (Mount Malville, q.v.) (Aughenbaugh and others, 1958, map E.1; Neuburg and others, 1959, map p.111, p.115-16). Maville [sic] Peninsula (Thiel and others, 1958, Fig.9). Berkner Bank, referring to the submarine feature on which Berkner Island (q.v.) and the present feature are grounded (Behrendt, 1962b, p.19). The nature and extent of the present feature were later determined on USARP flights over the area (AGS map, 1970) and from USLANDSAT imagery of 1973-74, and the name Henry Ice Rise was applied after Capt. Clifford D. Henry (1918-75), of US Military Sealift Command, ice pilot and Master of USNS Private John R. Towle, who died aboard his ship at sea while returning from his fourteenth voyage to Antarctica in support of USARP, 16 February 1975; formerly Master of USNS Wyandot on re-supply missions to the Antarctic Peninsula, 1969 and 1970-71 (Alberts, 1977, p.42; APC, 1980, p.4; Crabtree and Doake, 1980, map p.32; BAS sheet Misc. 2, 1981). Isla Quijada, so called by AAE after Vicealmte Hermes Quijada, of the Argentine Navy (Argentina. MD, 1978, letter Q).
