Vanderford Glacier (Coordinates: ) is a glacier about 8 km (5 mi) wide flowing northwest into the southeast side of Vincennes Bay, slightly south of the Windmill Islands. It was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) for Benjamin Vanderford, pilot of the sloop of war Vincennes of the United States Exploring Expedition under Captain Wilkes, 1838-42. The glacier was mapped from aerial photographs taken by U.S. Navy Operation Highjump, 1946-47.
