4008 Corbin           Discovered 1977 Jan. 22 at the Carlos U. Cesco Station of the Felix Aguilar Observatory.
Named in honor of Thomas E. Corbin, head of the Meridian Circle Division at the U.S. Naval Observatory, and his wife, Brenda Groves Corbin, since 1973 the Observatory's librarian. Serving early in his career as astronomer-in-charge of the Observatory's southern station in Argentina, Tom Corbin has since been responsible for several important astrometric programs, including the Astrographic Catalogue Reference Stars catalogue. Brenda Corbin is one of the most renowned astronomical librarians in the world, known for her work in the Special Libraries Association, the IAU Commission 5 Working Group on Nomenclature and for her enthusiasm in tracking down copies of rare works.
