168321 Josephschmidt           Discovered 1991 Sept. 12 by F. Börngen and L. D. Schmadel at Tautenburg.
Joseph Schmidt (1904-1942), an operatic tenor who performed in the world's top concert halls, also had a phenomenal career in radio and film. He emigrated from Germany in 1933, and after wandering through several countries he died in a Swiss refugee camp. The name was suggested by the first discoverer and M. Griesser.
