Description (see definition): A prominent, ice-covered cape, lying 15 mi NE of Cape Morse. Delineated from air photos taken by U.S. Navy (USN) Operation Highjump (1946-47). The U.S. Exploring Expedition (USEE) (1838-42) under Wilkes gave the name Cape Carr to an ice cape in about 6505S, 13130E, naming it for Lieutenant Overton Carr of the flagship Vincennes. Identification of Cape Carr is based on the correlation of Wilkes' chart of 1840 with G.D. Blodgett's reconnaissance map of 1955, compiled from air photos, taking into account the relative SW shift of Porpoise Bay from the 1840 to the 1955 map positions.
