12050 Humecronyn           Discovered 1997 Apr. 27 by Spacewatch at Kitt Peak.
Through the efforts of Hume Blake Cronyn (1864-1933), Canada's National Research Council was established in 1920. After his death, his widow donated funds for the construction of the Hume Cronyn Memorial Observatory at the University of Western Ontario in London.
