Tjossem

1982 AN. Discovered 1982 Jan. 4 by J. Gibson at Palomar.

Named in honor of a pioneer family in central Washington, four generations of whose members have been friends of the discoverer and his family. It honors in particular the memory of Peter Tjossem (1878-1957), millwright, farmer, amateur entomologist, lapidarist, amateur paleobotanist working at a professional level on identification of Miocene fossil woods of central Washington, elder in the Presbyterian Church - and friend to any young person who came to him, in the best traditions of the amateur scientist.
