Description (see definition): A prominent peak, 340 m, standing close SE of Stefansson Bay. Discovered in January 1930 by the British Australian and New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition (BANZARE) under Mawson and named for Dr. Stanley W. Kemp, British marine biologist and oceanographer who was Director of Research of the Discovery Investigations, 1924-36. This area was subsequently mapped in detail by Norwegian cartographers from aerial photographs taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition, 1936-37. They named the peak "Hornet," but Australian parties that explored the area in the l950s have identified it as Kemp Peak, named earlier by Mawson.
