Molholm Island is an island at the entrance to McGrady Cove in the eastern part of Newcomb Bay, in the Windmill Islands of Antarctica.[1] The island was mapped from air photographs taken by U.S. Navy Operation Highjump in 1946–47, and was named by Carl R. Eklund for John Molholm, a glaciologist at Wilkes Station in 1957.[1]
