1983 HC. Discovered 1983 Apr. 18 by N. G. Thomas at Anderson Mesa.

Named in memory of Ralph "Doc" Hubbard (18851980), of Medora, North Dakota. The son of Elbert Hubbard, Ralph was a nationally-recognized authority on American Indian culture, an expert at crafting Indian ceremonial clothing and an author and educator regarding the preservation of Indian culture and history. He worked for many years with the Boy Scouts of America; he had rich experiences in frontier life from ranching in Montana and Colorado around 1900, and the discoverer was one of hundreds of young people who later were enriched through Doc's biology teaching.
