Rankin Inlet

Among other geographical features, in 1954 -55 as a senior hydrographer aboard the chartered sealer MV Theron, I delineated, charted and named, this group of islands lying off the southeast corner of Rankin Inlet, Hudson Bay. Until then that area was only rudimentarily mapped and quite unpopulated. They are called the Mirage Islands.
