1991 BG. Discovered 1991 Jan. 17 by B. G. W. Manning at Stakenbridge.

Named in honor of Alice K. Manning, wife of the discoverer, for her support and encouragement of the discoverer's hobby over many years. The attention given to practical details such as warm clothing on cold nights, and the push needed to persuade him to finish the construction and fitting of measuring-machine encoders has contributed greatly to cometary astrometry and success in discovering minor planets.
