10437 van der Kruit           Discovered 1960 Sept. 24 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
Piet van der Kruit (b. 1944), a professor of astronomy at Groningen, works mainly on the structure of galaxies, using the radio synthesis telescope at Westerbork. Among his early successes were the radio-continuum maps of M51. The citation was prepared by U. Schwarz.
