Delaporte, Eugène Joseph (1882–1955)

Eugène Delaporte was a Belgian astronomer who, at the request of the newly-formed International Astronomical Union, drew up the constellation boundaries as they are known today, publishing his results in 1930. Two years later, he discovered the prototype of the Amor group of asteroids. In total Delaporte found 66 asteroids including 1221 Amor and 2101 Adonis. The Florian asteroid 1274 Delportia (discovered by himself) and the lunar impact crater Delporte are named after him
