Named in memory of Goosta Knutsson (1908-1973), Swedish author and radio producer who introduced quiz programs to Sweden. His children's stories about the cat Pelle Svanslos {see planet (8535)} and his adventures in Uppsala have been very popular. The author of twelve books, the first in 1939, Knutsson lived not far from the locations where many of the adventures take place. (M 33791)
