Description (see definition): A mountain group in the Transantarctic Mountains, lying eastward of Reedy Glacier and including the Wisconsin Range, Long Hills and Ohio Range. The mountains were discovered in two observations by the Byrd Antarctic Expedition (ByrdAE), 1933-35, one by Kennett L.

Portions of the Wisconsin Range are recorded in aerial photography obtained by U.S. Navy (USN) Operation Highjump, 1946-47. The entire mountain group was surveyed by U.S. Antarctic Research Program (USARP) parties and was mapped from U.S. Navy aerial photographs, 1959-64. Named by Admiral Byrd for William Horlick, of the Horlick's Malted Milk Corp., a supporter of the Byrd expedition of 1933-35.
