52337 Compton           Discovered 1992 Sept. 2 by F. Börngen and L. D. Schmadel at Tautenburg.
American Arthur Holly Compton (1892-1962) discovered the Compton effect, which confirms the particle nature of electromagnetic radiation. He received the 1927 Nobel Prize in physics, together with C. T. R. Wilson.
