separated from Graham Coast by Lemaire Channel, was discovered by GAE, 1873-74, in January 1874 and named Booth-Insel by PolarschifffahrtsGesellschaft of Hamburg, probably after Oskar Booth or Stanley Booth (or both), members of the Hamburg Geographical Society at that time ([Petermann], 1875a; map, 1875b); roughly charted as a new discovery by BeAE on 12 February 1898 and renamed Île Wandel, after Carl Frederick Wandel (1843-1930), Danish Arctic explorer and hydrographer, who assisted the expedition and supplied surplus equipment from the Danish Ingolf expeditions of 1895 and 1896 (Lecointe, chart, 1899; 1903, Carte 5).

Booth Island (USA) 65° 05' 00.0" S 64° 00' 00.0" W Island
Name ID: 122722 Place ID: 1589

Y-shaped island, 5 mi long and rising to 980 m, in the NE part of the Wilhelm Archipelago. Discovered and named by a German expedition under Dallmann 1873-74, probably for Oskar Booth or Stanley Booth, or both, members of the Hamburg Geographical Society at that time. The US-ACAN has rejected the name Wandel Island, applied by the BelgAE, 1897-99, in favor of the original naming.

Booth, Isla (CHL) 65° 05' 00.0" S 64° 00' 00.0" W Island
Name ID: 105212 Place ID: 1589

Descubierta por la Expedición Antártica Alemana de 1873-1874, al mando de Eduard Dallmann, la que le puso el nombre por el apellido de Oskar Booth, o de Stanley Booth, o de ambos, miembros de la Sociedad Geográfica de Hamburgo. El Comité Consultivo sobre Nombres Antárticos de los EE.UU., en su oportunidad, rechazó el nombre isla Wandel, que había sido puesto por la Expedición Antártica Belga de 1897-1899 y prefirió el nombre original. En cartas antiguas figuró como isla Wandel, isla Wandell e isla Wanden; todos estos nombres han sido derogados en razón de que el aplicado por Dallmann es el más antiguo y el original. Es la mayor y la más importante de las islas Dannebrog. Mide 4,5 millas de largo y su extremo N está a 4,8 millas al SW del cabo Renard. Está separada de la costa occidental de Tierra de O'Higgins por el canal Lemaire.
