Description (see definition): A mountain range about 40 mi long standing between the base of Martin Peninsula and Smith Glacier in Marie Byrd Land. The range consists of two ice-covered plateaus punctuated by several rock peaks and bluffs. The plateaus are oriented E-W and are separated by Kohler Glacier, a distributary which flows N from Smith Glacier. Discovered from a distance on Feb. 24, 1940 by R. Admiral Byrd and other members of the U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS) in an airplane flight from the ship Bear. Named by Byrd for Walter J. Kohler, manufacturer and former governor of Wisconsin, who was one of the supporters of the Byrd Antarctic Expedition (ByrdAE), 1933-35, and who helped furnish the seaplane from which the discovery was made.
