63528 Kocherhans           Discovered 2001 Aug. 13 by R. Dyvig at Badlands Observatory.
Joseph G. Kocherhans (b. 1929) participated extensively in the recovery of Badlands Observatory after a tragic fire in 1998. As part of this effort he designed, fabricated and donated an ingenious system to automate dome control. Prior to this, he had an extensive and noteworthy career in geological and civil engineering.
