A924 EJ. Discovered 1924 Mar. 7 by K. Reinmuth at Heidelberg.

Named in honor of John Eric Chambers (1969- ), graduate student at Manchester University, currently a predoctoral fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. John's research concentrates on the effect of mean-motion resonances on the orbital evolution of solar system objects, and he has recently completed a study of P/Swift-Tuttle, showing that the motion of this object is dominated by the 1:11 resonance with Jupiter. (M 22497)

Name proposed by members of the Planetary Sciences division, the identifications for this object having been made by B. G. Marsden.
