5308 Hutchison           Discovered 1981 Feb. 28 by S. J. Bus at Siding Spring in the course of the U.K. Schmidt-Caltech Asteroid Survey.
Robert Hutchison (b. 1938) recently retired as curator of meteorites at the Natural History Museum in London. His chemical, mineralogical and petrological studies of chondritic meteorites have advanced our understanding of the early solar system processes leading to the formation of chondrites.
