  • George Boole (November 2, 1815 – December 8, 1864) was a British mathematician and philosopher. As the inventor of Boolean algebra, the basis of all modern computer arithmetic, Boole is regarded in hindsight as one of the founders of the field of computer science, although computers did not exist in his day.
  • Name given by Arthur and Whitaker in the Rectified Lunar Atlas (1963) and approved by IAU in 1964 (Whitaker, 1999, p. 234).
