Harriman Glacier, Prince William Sound

Harriman Glacier is an 8-miles (13 km) long glacier that trends northeast to its terminus at the head of Harriman Fjord in Prince William Sound. The Harriman Glacier is one of nine named glaciers that flow into Harriman Fjord. It was named for Edward Harriman who was a wealthy railroad magnate who organized a maritime expedition to Alaska in 1899. Harriman brought with him an elite community of scientists, artists, photographers, and naturalists to explore and document the Alaskan coast. The Harriman Alaska expedition explored the coast of Alaska for two months, from Seattle to Siberia and back again. Read more here and here.
