19704 Medlock           Discovered 1999 Oct. 7 by S. Brady at Hudson.
Kevin Medlock (b. 1954) is a Californian award-winning telescope and instrument maker known for large aperture, research-grade telescopes. He constructed the 0.75-m reflector for the public program at Fremont Peak and helped restore the 0.5-m Brashear refractor at the Chabot Space and Science Center.
