Description (see definition): Mountain, 1,675 m, rising eastward of Cape Jeremy, the E side of the N entrance to George VI Sound, on the W coast of Antarctic Peninsula. Discovered by the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) under Charcot, 1908-10. Seen from a great distance and thought to be an island, he named it "Ile Gordon Bennett" for James Gordon Bennett (1841-1918) of the New York Herald, who gave financial aid to the expedition. The British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE) under Rymill, surveying this area in 1936-37 and finding no island, applied the name Mount Edgell to the feature now recognized as Charcot's "Ile Gordon Bennett." The name Mount Edgell, after Sir John Augustine Edgell, Hydrographer of the British Navy, 1932-45, has since become established through international usage.
