Kenneth I. Kellerman (born 1937) is an astronomer at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory.[1][2] He is best known for his work on quasars. He won the Helen B. Warner Prize for Astronomy of the American Astronomical Society in 1971,[3] and the Bruce Medal of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific in 2014.
