First mapped by the Swedish Antarctic Expedition (1901-1904), the glacier was remapped in 1912 by David Ferguson and was renamed after Alfred Harker (1859-1939), an English geologist.

Because of global warming, Hawker has over the decades advanced further into the bay, but still, it is the most impressive and grand glacier on the eastern side of Cumberland Bay.
