Eklund having travelled along Lammers and Gibbs Glaciers in Jan. 1941. Surveyed by Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1948-50 and 1958. Named by UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) after John Hadley (1682-1744), English mathematician who, at the same time as Thomas Godfey, independently invented the quadrant (the forerunner of the sextant), in 1730-31.
