Klavetter

1981 EK14. Discovered 1981 Mar. 1 by S. J. Bus at Siding Spring.

Named in memory of James Jay Klavetter (19601997), professor of physics at California State University at Sacramento. His enthusiasm for teaching undergraduate astronomy will serve as a model for communicating the value and excitement of science. Klavetter studied the sources and behavior of cometary dust and gas tails through telescoping imaging, and he also established the chaotic rotation state of Hyperion. Klavetter's positive outlook and thirst for new experiences remained undimmed even in the final days of his battle with leukemia. (M 30475)
