132824 Galamb           Discovered 2002 Aug. 17 by K. Sárneczky on NEAT images taken at Palomar.
József Galamb (1881-1955) was a Hungarian-born U.S. mechanical engineer who joined the Ford Motor Company as a designer in 1905. After redesigning the cooling system for the Model N, he became the company's chief designer and devised many of the parts of the Model T. He invented the production line in 1913.
