    Latady Island is a low ice-covered island, about 60 km (35 miles) long and nearly 40 km (more than 10 miles) wide, lying 72 km (45 miles) south of Charcot Island and west of Alexander Island and its area is 3,300 km². An ice-covered feature in this approximate position was seen from the air and described by Sir Hubert Wilkins in 1929, but not recognized as an island or separately mapped. Latady Island was first photographed from the air by the Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE), 1947-1948, and mapped from these photos by Searle of the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1960. Latady Island was named by the United Kingdom Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) for William R. Latady, aerial photographer and navigator on the Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE) flight.
