Dyer Point

Dyer Point (71°53′S 100°37′W) is an ice-covered point just west of Hughes Peninsula on the north coast of Thurston Island. It was first plotted from air photos taken by U.S. Navy Operation Highjump in December 1946, and was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for J.N. Dyer, a radio engineer with the Byrd Antarctic Expedition in 1933–35.
