Bearman Glacier (72°21′S 99°10′W / 72.350°S 99.167°W / -72.350; -99.167) is a glacier whose head is east of Mount Howell in central Thurston Island. The glacier flows south into Schwartz Cove on the south side of the island. It was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names after F.O. Bearman, Photographer's Mate in the Eastern Group of U.S. Navy Operation Highjump, which obtained aerial photographs of this glacier and adjacent coastal areas, 1946–47.
