Named in honor of Newton and Margaret Mayall, who have enriched the literature for amateur astronomers with their delightful and informative books entitled Sundials and Skyshooting; who have preserved the papers and memorabilia of Annie Jump Cannon; and who carried the AAVSO through the difficult period of moving its headquarters from the Harvard College Observatory. (M 15573)

The name, which refers to the Mayall’s residence in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was suggested by B. L. Welther, who also wrote the citation.
