Description (see definition): An 1810 m summit 1 mi. N of the base of Ketchum Ridge in the S part of Endeavour Massif, Kirkwood Range, Victoria Land. The name Mount Endeavour was given to the S block of the Kirkwood Range by the New Zealand Northern Survey Party of Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition (CTAE) in Oct. 1957, but in subsequent New Zealand and U.S. maps the name is identified as the 1810 m summit described above. Following additional mapping by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in 1999 and consultation between Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) and New Zealand Geographic Board (NZGB), the name Endeavour Massif (q.v.) was approved for the S block of the Kirkwood Range. For the sake of historical continuity the name Mount Endeavour has been retained for the summit near Ketchum Ridge. The summit and the massif are named after HMNZS Endeavour (formerly John Biscoe), supply ship to the 1957 New Zealand Northern Survey Party. A 1962 decision refined.
