Description (see definition): A glacier, 50 mi long, draining the N slopes of Mounts Black Prince, Royalist and Adam in the Admiralty Mountains of Victoria Land. It flows NW between Lyttelton Range and Dunedin Range, turning E on rounding the latter range to enter the sea S of Cape Scott. The coastal extremity of the glacier was charted in 1911-12 by the Northern Party, led by Victor Campbell, of the British Antarctic Expedition (BrAE), 1910-13. It is named for James R. Dennistoun, New Zealand alpinist who was in charge of the mules on board the Terra Nova on her way to Antarctica. The entire extent of the glacier was mapped by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from surveys and U.S. Navy aerial photography, 1960-63. The name Fowlie Glacier (q.v.), a tributary glacier, has been inadvertently misapplied to this feature.
