3665 Fitzgerald           Discovered 1979 Mar. 19 by A. Mrkos at Klet.
Named in memory of Ella Fitzgerald (1917-1996), renowned jazz singer known internationally as the "First Lady of Song". A phenomenal improvisationalist who used her voice as if it were a musical instrument, she was also known for her albums of definitive performances of the works of many of the leading songwriters of the first half of the twentieth century. Name proposed by M. Tichý and B. G. Marsden.
