A broad channel glacier, over 20 mi long, debouching into the head of Vincennes Bay, just E of Hatch Islands. First mapped (1955) by G.D. Blodgett from aerial photographs taken by USN Operation Highjump (1947). Named by US-ACAN for John Quincy Adams, sixth President of the United States. Adams was instrumental while later serving as U.S. representative from Massachusetts in gaining congressional authorization of the USEE (1838-42) under Lt. Charles Wilkes, and perpetuating the compilation and publication of the large number of scientific reports based on the work of this expedition.
