This island is mostly unglaciated, having only a relatively small ice cap in its northern end. There is a wide unglaciated area on its southwestern shore. Alger Island is the wintering site of the 1901 failed American Baldwin-Ziegler Expedition and on the shore lie the disintegrating remains of its Arctic expedition base, Camp Ziegler. They named this island after 19th-century American author Horatio Alger who was a significant figure of American cultural and social ideals at that time.
