I've contributed significant references and some text recently.
I knew Dr. Leonard from about 1950 to his death in 1960 (I was a child). I continue to be a friend of the family.

I've edited some minor parts for grammar and clarity. I'm not an astronomer, so I have a couple of questions on the content:
I renamed the section to 'Kuiper Belt hypothesis' as I presume there's only one of them? If there was more than one Kuiper Belt hypothesis, we would use the plural 'hypotheses'. Also, is the term 'trans-Neptunian' or 'ultra-Neptunian' - the source uses the latter?
It is unclear in the source whether the three 'prize pupils' of Leonard who directed planetariums were recipients of the Leonard medal, or were his 'best' pupils. If the latter, I'd replace 'prize' with 'best'. I think it would also be good to name them (Ron Hartman, Ron Oriti and O. Richard Norton?).
