Description (see definition): Large glacier flowing E along the N side of Godfrey Upland into the Traffic Circle and Mercator Ice Piedmont, on the E coast of Graham Land. This glacier appears indistinctly in an aerial photograph taken by Sir Hubert Wilkins on Dec. 20, 1928, but shows more clearly in aerial photographs taken by Lincoln Ellsworth in 1935 and the U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS) in 1940. It was resighted in 1947 by the Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE) under Ronne, who named it for Lester Lammers, contributor of nine grown husky dogs and four puppies to the expedition.
