19694 Dunkelman           Discovered 1999 Sept. 8 by Catalina Sky Survey.
Lawrence Dunkelman (b. 1917), of the Naval Research Laboratory and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, measured the solar near-ultraviolet spectral distribution from Mt. Lemmon in 1952 and helped advise the Mercury astronauts on observations of the upper atmosphere and space phenomena from orbit.
