Mount Todd is a peak rising to 3,600 m at the north extremity of Probuda Ridge in north-central Sentinel Range, Ellsworth Mountains in Antarctica. It surmounts Embree Glacier to the west, Patleyna Glacier to the northeast and Ellen Glacier to the south-southeast.
The peak was named in 1984 by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) after Edward P. Todd, a physicist for the National Science Foundation from 1963–84, and the director of the Division of Polar Programs of the National Science Foundation (NSF) from 1977–84. Todd also had responsibility for the development of the U.S. Antarctic Research Program.
Todd Peak is located at Coordinates: , which is 3 km north by east of Mount Press and 8.65 east-northeast of Mount Hale. It was mapped by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) from surveys and U.S. Navy aerial photography from 1957-60. The mapping was updated in 1988.
