Named in honor of Edward L. G. Bowell, Lowell Observatory astronomer who has made and who continues to make impressive contributions in many areas of minor-planet astronomy. Following his comprehensive UBV photoelectric photometry of minor planets, he has revived and augmented the Lowell photographic astrometric program and has discovered several new objects. He also does extensive orbital work on minor planets, including the establishment of identifications and the prediction of occultations. Name proposed by B. G. Marsden.
