Horatio Herbert Kitchener, Viscount Kitchener (1850-1916), was a British Field Marshal and Proconsul who was the Secretary of State for War (1914-1916) and who organized the British armies at the outset of World War I.

This name was approved in 1916 over the name “Mount Douglas” to avoid duplication.
