Named in honor of Clifford J. Cunningham {1955} , Canadian amateur astronomer and writer, whose interest in minor planets has encompassed positional measurements and photometry. Cunningham's book Introduction to Asteroids, published in 1988, has justifiably earned praise from both readers and reviewers. He has recently been working on a bibliographic database on minor planets that currently comprises more than 10,000 references dating back to the year 1789. (M 16248)
