Description (see definition): A glacier, 25 mi long, in the north-central Admiralty Mountains. The glacier drains the northern slopes of Mount Adam and flows along the E wall of DuBridge Range to Pressure Bay on the N coast of Victoria Land. Some of the glacier bypasses Pressure Bay and reaches the sea W of Flat Island. The seaward end of the glacier was first mapped by the Northern Party, led by Victor Campbell, of the British Antarctic Expedition (BrAE), 1910-13. Named by Campbell for Sir Arthur Shipley, master of Christ's College, Cambridge, England, at the suggestion of Priestley. The entire glacier was mapped by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), 1960-63.
