7360 Moberg           Discovered 1996 Jan. 30 by C.-I. Lagerkvist at the European Southern Observatory.
Named in memory of Vilhelm Moberg (1898-1973), Swedish novelist and writer. Moberg mainly wrote about society's lower classes and always fought for the individual against the authorities. He also strove unsuccessfully to make Sweden a republic. Among his best-known novels are Utvandrarna ("The Emigrants") and Invandrarna ("The Immigrants"), about a family moving from Småland to Minnesota during the nineteenth century.
