Named in memory of Goro Kuroiwa (1912–1990), Japanese astronomer and observer of variable stars. A student in the department of astronomy at the University of Tokyo on the occasion of the total solar eclipse on 1936 June 19, he independently discovered the nova CP Lac, along with Kazuaki Gomi {see planet  (7035)}. While serving with the Japanese army in 1942 he independently discovered the nova CP Pup. He represented Japan in the geodetic survey program using photoelectric observations of lunar occultations, carried out from 1950 to the 1960s by the U.S. Army Map Service Far East. (M 34343) _ _.
