Grouping from scientist who served on Admiral Byrd's flagship, USS/USNS WYANDOT (AKA-92) on Deep Freeze I and II after WYANDOT finished her duty with Operation SUNEC.

WYANDOT brought the Byrd expedition to the pole to establish the Little America base.

I have some USGS items related to Antarctica but nothing specific to Mericle Rock on Campbell Glacier, Victoria Land

I recently picked up a grouping named to Dave Mericle, same USN Electronics Tech that Mericle Rock was named after. (I posted some pics in the Groupings section)

 

I googled it quite a bit but really havent found much on it. How does someone get a nanatak rock out cropping named after them?? Are there any Navy journals that you know of that I could search? I would like to read up on it.

 

Thanks!
