236616 Gray           Discovered 2006 May 1 by P. A. Wiegert at Mauna Kea.
David Frank Gray (b. 1938) is a stellar spectroscopist who has advanced our knowledge of stellar rotation, magnetic fields,granulation and turbulence, oscillations and star spots. He was President of IAU Commission 36 from 1988 to 1991 and Director of the Elginfield Observatory in London (Canada) from 1991 to 2011.
