Boyer Spur (71°51′S 62°48′W / 71.850°S 62.800°W / -71.850; -62.800Coordinates: 71°51′S 62°48′W / 71.850°S 62.800°W / -71.850; -62.800) is a mountainous spur from the base of Condor Peninsula on the east side of Palmer Land. The spur stands between Kellogg Glacier and Gruening Glacier, about 5 nautical miles (9 km) west-northwest of Malva Bluff and the northwest head of Hilton Inlet. It was mapped by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) in 1974, and named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Stephen J. Boyer, a geologist with the USGS geological and mapping party to the Lassiter Coast area in 1972–73.[1]
