Narrative

A peak, 2 km south of Mt. Rivett in Mac.Robertson Land. Land was seen in this vicinity during aeroplane flights by BANZARE (1929-31) on 31 December, 1929, and 5 January, 1930. The area was visited by BANZARE on 13 February, 1931, when a landing was made at Scullin Monolith. Named after A.L. Kennedy, physicist with BANZARE, 1930-31. Mawson's maps show three peaks in this area for which he proposed, at various times, four names, Rivett, Marsden, Kennedy and Hinks. The names of Rivett and Hinks were not used when they indicated they did not wish their names to appear on the map. As a result of photography by USN Operation Highjump (1946-47) four peaks were found and all four names were applied.
