952 Caia (A916 US)          Discovered 1916-Oct-27 by Neujmin, G. at Simeis
Discovered at Simeis during the First World War while Simeis was not in communication with the Rechen-Institut for long periods of time were given provisional designations containing the Greek letter SIGMA. These are here abbreviated S.
