Tufts Pass, 1937
Discovered aerially in 1937, Tufts Pass (also referred to as Tufts College Valley and Tufts Valley) is situated at 69 degrees 25 minutes south and 70 degrees 35 minutes west, in Antarctica. The pass runs between the Rouen Mountains and the Elgar Uplands, in the north of Alexander Island.
The 1947-48 Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE) named the pass for Tufts University. Robert R. Nichols, chair of the Department of Geology, served as geologist, senior scientist and trailman for the expedition.
