Notes Belgica information: Prominent cape between Collins Bay and Beascochea Bay on the W coast of Graham Land. Discovered by the BelgAE, 1897-99, under Gerlache, but apparently not named by them until about 1904, when in working up their scientific reports they gave it the name Trooz. In the meantime, Charcot's FrAE, 1903-05, left for the Antarctic and in Nov. 1904 resighted the same cape, to which they gave the name Trois Perez, for the brothers Fernando, Leopoldo and Manuel Perez of Buenos Aires. Maurice Bongrain in his report of 1914 acknowledges the Belgian name Trooz for this cape. However, the US-ACAN has retained the Charcot name because of wider usage, and has given the name Trooz to the large glacier 5 mi NE of Cape Perez. http://geonames.usgs.gov
