Cape Murray (Graham Land)

Cape Murray is a cape forming the western end of Murray Island just off the west coast of Pefaur (Ventimiglia) Peninsula in Graham Land, Antarctica, separating Hughes Bay to the northeast from Charlotte Bay to the south. First charted by the 1897-99 Belgian Antarctic Expedition under Lt. Adrien de Gerlache, and considered at the time as joined to the mainland. Named by Gerlache, presumably for Sir John Murray, British marine zoologist and oceanographer, an ardent advocate of Antarctic research.



Cape Murray is located at 64°21′22″S 61°36′55″W. British mapping in 1978.
