Bowers Corner (79°1′S 84°21′W) is a peak located 9 nautical miles (17 km) southeast of Lishness Peak in Owen Ridge, the extreme south end of the main ridge of Sentinel Range in Ellsworth Mountains. The feature stands at the eastern side of the terminus of Nimitz Glacier where it bends, or makes a corner, on joining Minnesota Glacier. It was first mapped by the United States Geological Survey from surveys and from U.S. Navy air photos, 1957–59, and named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Lieutenant Richard A. Bowers, U.S. Navy Reserve, who was in charge of the construction crew which built the IGY South Pole Station in the 1956–57 season.
