Eponym Wilder D. Bancroft

Bancroft is a small, bowl-shaped impact crater located to the southwest of Archimedes on the Mare Imbrium. A wide, shallow depression runs from the rim of Bancroft southeast to the Montes Archimedes. There are some clefts at the edge of the mare to the west and southwest of the crater.

Bancroft was previously identified as Archimedes A before being renamed by the IAU.
