Loripaul

1989 LM. Discovered 1989 June 4 by E. F. Helin at Palomar.

Named in honor of Lori L. Paul, Friend of All Animals, assistant director of Telescopes in Education (TIE) at the Mount Wilson Institute and Jet Propulsion Laboratory, environmentalist, veterinary technician, part time educator and artist, former zookeeper and laser operator. Her role in acquiring important sponsorship and recognition for TIE is particularly acknowledged. Like her many eclectic pursuits, her accomplishments have resulted from her curiosity, an aesthetic sense of excellence and attention to detail. This minor planet is being named to celebrate her wedding engagement to Rob Staehle {see planet (3875)}. (M 31024)
