Scientific paper

A previously unknown magnetic white dwarf has been discovered as part of
the Large, Bright Quasar Survey (Foltz et al., 1988). The absorption
features are identified with transitions of hydrogen and are analyzed in
the context of high-field Zeeman models to derive a polar dipole field
strength of 24 x 10 to the 6th G at the stellar surface.
