Lucian J. Kemble (1922–1999) was a Franciscan Father ordained in 1953. Multi-talented, he was an avid amateur astronomer with a particular interest in deep-sky observing. In 1980, he drew attention to a chain of stars in the constellation of Camelopardalis that is now known as Kemble’s Cascade. (M 54828)
