Brush Glacier (74°29′S 111°36′W / 74.483°S 111.600°W / -74.483; -111.600Coordinates: 74°29′S 111°36′W / 74.483°S 111.600°W / -74.483; -111.600) is a broad glacier in the northwest part of the Bear Peninsula, flowing west into Dotson Ice Shelf to the north of Jeffrey Head, in Marie Byrd Land. It was first mapped by the United States Geological Survey from air photos taken by U.S. Navy Operation Highjump in January 1947, and named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Bernard E. Brush, station engineer at the Byrd (very low frequency) Substation, 1966.
