85411 Paulflora           Discovered 1996 Nov. 3 by E. Meyer and E. Obermair at the Davidschlag Observatory.
Paul Flora (b. 1922), caricaturist, graphic artist and illustator, was born in South Tyrol but has lived in Innsbruck, North Tyrol, since his early years. His first book, Flora's Fauna, was published in 1953. His ironic and sarcastic drawings, sketched in a distinctive, unique style, have gained international recognition.
