Harvey

1982 SF. Discovered 1982 Sept. 22 by E. Bowell at Anderson Mesa.

Named in honor of G. Roger Harvey, instructor in astronomy at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte. Using handcrafted Newtonian reflectors of up to 74-cm aperture, Harvey has visually observed more than 2,600 different minor planets, far surpassing previous efforts. His observations have at times proved scientifically valuable for determining rotation periods and identifying wayward objects. (M 16593)

Name suggested and citation provided by J. U. Gunter, who sparked Harvey's interest in minor planets; name endorsed by B. G. Marsden.
