114096 Haroldbier           Discovered 2002 Nov. 8 by J. V. McClusky at Kingsnake Observatory.
Harold D. Bier (b. 1931), chemistry professor emeritus at Texas Lutheran University, helped found the department and played a major role in educating students in physical and analytical chemistry for over 30 years. More than 120 of these students received advanced degrees in chemistry, medicine and the sciences.
