Reference work entry

Discovered 1919 May 19 by K. Reinmuth at Heidelberg.

Karl Reinmuth discovered so many minor planets that he often had difficulties to find proper names for the numbered ones. He therefore frequently used girl’s names from the calendar Der Lahrer hinkende Bote. These names need not to have any connections to his contemporaries. (I. van Houten-Groeneveld)
