OUS Libraries and Press awards scholarships annually to student employees. These employees have demonstrated themselves to be trustworthy, hard-working, and invaluable members of the team. Awards are made possible by endowments from two separate gifts.
The Carl Totten Award was first established in 1995 in memory of Carl E. Totten '30, of Los Angeles. Winifred "Winnie" Wilberding Totten '30, wished to memorialize her husband and the financial difficulties they faced after graduation in 1930. The award honors the sacrifices that today's students endure in order to get a higher education, recognizing student library employees who have a financial need, have provided outstanding service to library patrons while maintaining an active and successful student career.

The Alice Kathryn Kidder Outstanding Student Employee Award Fund was established to honor Alice Kathryn Kidder Evans. Kidder was an Oregon State College alumna who graduated with a degree in Commerce in 1924. She played on the women’s basketball team. After graduating, she had various jobs. She and her husband lived in Ithaca, New York where they worked for Ithaca Gun Works. She was a very active alumni member and served as a member of the OSU President’s Club and the Council of Regents until the 1990s.
The Kidder Award recognizes and rewards students who provide exemplary service to their unit and to library patrons.
Alice Kidder Evans also contributed photos along with her father, Andrew Kidder, of campus buildings and students to the Special Collections and Archives Research Center located in the Valley Library. The Alice Kidder Evans Photograph Collection shows campus life through photos taken from 1889 to 1919.
