It was mapped by the United States Geological Survey from surveys and U.S. Navy air photos, 1956–66, and was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Jules Madey of Clark, New Jersey, a ham radio operator who arranged innumerable phone patches between personnel in Antarctica and parties in the U.S. in the period 1957–67.[1]
