6510 Tarry           Discovered 1987 Feb. 23 by C. S. Shoemaker and E. M. Shoemaker at Palomar.
Named in honor of Americans William and Nancy Tarry, whose kindness, thoughtfulness and friendship have left a lasting impression on Carolyn Shoemaker and her family and good friends. When Eugene Shoemaker was killed in an outback car collision far from Alice Springs, the Tarrys unhesitatingly provided their hospitality and assistance to them for several weeks. Bill is general manager for Boeing Constructors with the Boeing Defence and Space Group in Alice Springs.
