Named in honor of Jan Schilt {1894-1982}, Columbia University astronomer who has made significant contributions to the study of galactic structure and dynamics and the problems of stellar luminosity calibrations. The cooperative venture by Schilt at Columbia and Brouwer {see planet (1746)} at Yale, together with the Argentine astronomers at San Juan, led to the establishment of the Yale-Columbia Southern Station in the early 1960s.
