Hale Glacier

Hale Glacier (72°13′S 100°33′W) is a glacier about 6 nautical miles (11 km) long, located just east of Mount Simpson on Thurston Island, Antarctica, and flowing southwest to the Abbot Ice Shelf in Peacock Sound. It was delineated from air photos taken by U.S. Navy Squadron VX-6 in January 1960, and was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Lieutenant Bill J. Hale, U.S. Navy, a helicopter pilot aboard the USS Burton Island (AGB-1) who made exploratory flights to Thurston Island in February 1960.
