7237 Vickyhamilton           Discovered 1988 Nov. 3 by K. Suzuki and T. Furuta at Toyota.
Victoria Hamilton (b. 1971) is a researcher at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa who studies the mineralogy and igneous histories of planetary bodies using infrared spectroscopy. She has found evidence for extensive, olivine-rich bedrock on Mars. The name was suggested by T. H. Burbine.
