11769 Alfredjoy           Discovered 1973 Sept. 29 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
Alfred H. Joy (1882-1973) was an astronomer at the Mount Wilson Observatory from 1915 to 1973 who measured spectroscopic parallaxes and radial velocities of stars and studied variable stars. He invented the T Tauri classification.
