9687 Uhlenbeck           Discovered 1960 Sept. 24 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
Together with Samuel A. Goudsmit, Dutch-American physicist George E. Uhlenbeck (1900-1988) proposed the concept of electron spin at the University of Leiden in 1925. Spin is a fundamental property of neutrons, protons and other elementary particles. The name was suggested by W. A. Fröger.
