17891 Buraliforti           Discovered 1999 Mar. 6 by P. G. Comba at Prescott.
Cesare Burali-Forti (1861-1931) taught at the Military Academy in Turin. He discovered a paradox in Cantor's set theory: since the ordinal number of a set of ordinals is greater than the ordinal of each set element, "the ordinal of the set of all ordinals" is a self-contradictory concept.
