  • Named for Louise Freeland Jenkins (July 5, 1888–May 9, 1970) was an American astronomer. She worked in Japan and then at Yale University. She was co-editor of the Astronomical Journal starting in 1942. She was noted for her research into the trigonometric parallax of nearby stars. She also studied variable stars.
  • This replacement name for a formerly lettered crater was provisionally introduced on LTO-63D3 (August, 1974), where it is listed as "a new name approved by the IAU". It was not actually approved until 1982 (IAU Transactions XVIIIB). - Jim Mosher
