(872) Holda

Reference work entry

Discovered 1917 May 21 by M. F. Wolf at Heidelberg.

Named presumably in honor of Edward Singleton Holden (1846–1914), American astronomer at Lick Observatory, which Wolf had visited before World War I. (I. van Houten-Groeneveld)

Holden, definitively, is honored by planet  (2974).
