1982 RE. Discovered 1982 Sept. 15 by E. Bowell at Anderson Mesa.

Named in honor of Paul A. Sweitzer (1936- ) on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Sweitzer served as a reporter on the Arizona Daily Sun during 1958-1994, covering news, sports, the performing arts, religion, education, law enforcement and the courts. During that time he made a special effort to report on events and astronomical discoveries at the Lowell Observatory, and in the course of his work he developed warm relationships with many of Lowell's staff. His love of music, especially opera, has led him to become an unfailing supporter, through reviews and informative articles, of the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra. (M 28089)
