6376 Schamp           Discovered 1987 May 29 by C. S. Shoemaker and E. M. Shoemaker at Palomar.
Named in honor of Americans Larry and Becky Schamp of Alice Springs. Larry, an electrical engineer by training, is currently the manager of a TRW high-tech aerospace group located in this remote outpost of Northern Territory. Becky is renowned for her outback hospitality. This couple took in members of the Shoemaker family on their arrival from the United States after the car collision in which Eugene died, and then they hosted Carolyn when she left the hospital. Larry's 6 feet, 8 inches of gentleness and know-how and Becky's warmth, understanding and enthusiasm for life helped to sustain this family in a time of great need.
