15938 Bohnenblust           Discovered 1997 Dec. 27 by P. G. Comba at Prescott.
H. Frederic Bohnenblust (1906-2000) was a Swiss-American mathematician who held professorships at Princeton and later at Caltech, where he became dean of graduate studies. A great teacher and a strong advocate of mathematical education, he was the discoverer's thesis adviser.
