The peninsula, an ice-covered spur from the main mountain mass of the Antarctic Peninsula, projects over 40 mi in a NE arc from its base between Mobiloil and Casey Inlets. Discovered and partially photographed from the air by Lincoln Ellsworth on his 1935 trans-Antarctic flight from Dundee Island to the Ross Sea. Photographed from the air and charted from the ground by the USAS in 1940. Named for Herbert Hollick-Kenyon, pilot on Ellsworth's flight in 1935, whose demonstration of the practicability of landing and taking off an airplane in isolated areas constitutes a distinct contribution to the technique of Antarctic exploration.
