The Crowell Buttresses (83°3′S 162°30′E) are a series of high snow and rock buttresses, 10 nautical miles (19 km) long, forming the north wall of Cornwall Glacier for a distance of 5 nautical miles (9 km) and then trending northeast an equal distance along the west side of Lowery Glacier, in the Queen Elizabeth Range. The feature was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names after John T. Crowell (died 1986), who served with the National Science Foundation as Antarctic Vessel Project Officer, 1960–63, and Special Projects Officer, 1963–69. He led a reconnaissance party to the Antarctic Peninsula in January 1963 to investigate the location for a U.S. station in the peninsula area.
