Abstract

They Barry Glacier, in the northwest corner of Prince William Sound (fig. 6), was first described by Glenn, Castner, and Mendenhall. It was more extensively studied by the Harriman Alaska expedition in 1899; by Grant in 1905; by Grant and Higgens in 1908 and 1909; and by Martin in 1910. In 1899 Gannett made the first map which accurately delineated the front of the Barry Glacier. The front was remapped by Grant in 1905, by Grant and Higgins in 1908 and 1909, and by Martin in 1910. Numerous photographs were taken in these years, and several of them were reproduced in the reports of the earlier expeditions and gave an exhaustive treatment of the known life history of the Barry Glacier up to and including 1910.
