Millerand Island or Cap Millerand is a high rugged island 6 km (3 nmi) in diameter, lying 7 km (4 nmi) south of Cape Calmette, off the west coast of Graham Land. Millerand Island was discovered by the French Antarctic Expedition (1908-1910) under Jean-Baptiste Charcot. Millerand Island was named by Jean-Baptiste Charcot, presumably for Alexandre Millerand, French statesman.
