Hershey

1990 OB. Discovered 1990 July 19 by E. F. Helin at Palomar.

Named in memory of Wesley Lamar Hershey (19131989), director of the Caltech "Y" at the California Institute of Technology for 30 years. Always ready to help students with sympathy and understanding, he developed the Y into a major factor of campus life. He provided an environment where exploration of ideas and concerns, controversial or not, was not only acceptable but encouraged. He encouraged students to face the issues of values in their own lives and for society as a whole. (M 25978)
