Description (see definition): Cape marking the W extremity of a rocky peninsula which rises more than 625 m and projects from the W coast of Graham Land for 3 mi to form the S shore of Calmette Bay. Discovered in 1909 by the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) under Charcot, who from a distance mistook this cape for an island. The British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE) under Rymill, 1934-37, determined the true nature of the feature. Named by Charcot for Gaston Calmette, editor of Le Figoro, who furnished the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) with copies of this newspaper for the two years preceding the expedition.
