Narrative

That portion of the coast of Antarctica lying between Cape Selborne and the eastern side of the Beardmore Glacier. Named for Sir Ernest Shackleton, who had acommpanied Scott on his southern journey in the NAE, 1901-04, and who subsequently led three Antarctic expeditions, the BAE, 1907-09, the ITAE 1914-17, and the Rowett-Shackleton Expedition 1921-22. Shackleton discovered the area beyond the Shackleton Inlet to the Beardmore Glacier and was the first to find a practicable route to the South Pole, but lack of food stopped him 97 miles from his goal.
