24944 Harish-Chandra           Discovered 1997 June 11 by P. G. Comba at Prescott.
Harish-Chandra (1923-1983) was born and educated in India but spent most of his academic career in the United States. He made profound contributions to the theory of infinite-dimensional representations of groups and their associated characters, as well as the differential equations they satisfy.
