37601 Vicjen           Discovered 1992 Apr. 3 by C. S. Shoemaker and D. H. Levy at Palomar.
Vic Winter (b. 1953) and Jen Winter (b. 1969) have spread interest in astronomy to a series of rural schools in Bolivia. They work with schools there, giving freely of their astronomical knowledge and providing telescopes and support. They try to instill in this remote land a love of the night sky.
