85299 Neander           Discovered 1994 Oct. 5 by F. Börngen at Tautenburg.
Headmaster of a Latin school, Joachim Neander (1650-1680) wrote the words to the ecumenical hymn Praise to the Lord, the Almighty. The Neander Valley, near Düsseldorf, also spelled Neanderthal, is named after him. It was where the anthropoid Homo neanderthalensis [primigenius] was found in 1856.
