Palmer, Nathaniel Brown


Born Aug. 8, 1799, in Stonington; died June 21, 1877, in San Francisco. American explorer and sealer.

While commanding the sloop Hero in November 1820, Palmer approached the Antarctic mainland at the island of Trinity. With G. Powell, he discovered the South Orkney islands in 1821 while aboard the ship James Monroe. Palmer’s name has been given to an archipelago near the extreme northwest of the Antarctic peninsula and to a section of the coast adjacent to the Orleans Strait (Palmer Coast). In the USA, the entire Antarctic Peninsula is sometimes called Palmer Land.
