Mount Morgan within the Ford Ranges

Mount Morgan (76°53′S 143°34′) is a 999 meter high mountain in the Westarctica. It is located within the Ford Ranges 8 kilometers (5.0 mi) northeast of Mount Swan, near the Gutenko Nunataks.

The United States Antarctic Service discovered and mapped it during its 1939-1941 expedition. The Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names named the mountain in 1966 after Charles Gill Morgan (1906-1980), a geologist in the second Antarctic expedition (1933-1935) of the US polar explorer Richard Evelyn Byrd.
