1690 Mayrhofer           Discovered 1948 Nov. 8 by M. Laugier at Nice.
Named in honor of Karl Mayrhofer, Austrian astronomer, currently living at Ried im Innkreis, well known for his orbit computations on minor planets. Name proposed by O. Kippes, who found some of the identifications involving this planet.
