18292 Zoltowski           Discovered 1977 Mar. 17 at the Agassiz Station of the Harvard College Observatory.
Frank B. Zoltowski (b. 1957) discovered 60 numbered minor planets and made numerous critical observations of near-earth objects, notably a dramatic recovery of 1999 AN10, while he was working in South Australia during 1997-1999. He continued to make astrometric contributions on his return to the U.S.
