34398 Terryschmidt           Discovered 2000 Sept. 9 by B. D. Warner at the Palmer Divide Observatory.
Through self study, Terry Eugene Schmidt (1938-1993), a graduate of Aurora College in Illinois, became a recongized expert in the field of meteoritics. Among his other interests was determining minor-planet lightcurve parameters, which he passed on to the discoverer.
