A map of Antarctica in 1926, with American regions (in dark blue) at their greatest extent.

American Antarctic possessions:

  • American Antarctic Zone — 1918-1922
    • Not an official political entity. An area of former Russian land which was under the direct administration of the United States Military.
  • Byrdia — 1922-1986
  • Palmeria — 1922-1978
  • South Pole — 1950
    • Briefly under de facto American Military administration from its creation on January 1st to the inauguration of Director-General Krug on January 19th, 1950.
