In the Spring of 1955, Chancellor ,William P. Tolley accepted for the University from publisher Richard H. Amberg the annual Post Standard Award, honoring a student, faculty member, member of the library staff or friend of the library for distinguished service to Syracuse University Library.
Since that time seventeen individual recipients of the Award have been honored for their contributions to the quality and development of the library. The Award consists of an engraved gift that is presented to the recipient, a large plaque for display in the library, bearing the names of all those who have received the Award through the years, and an annual grant of $100 for the purchase of books.
Mr. Robert C. Atkinson, Managing Editor of the Post Standard, presented the current Award to Jessie B. Watkins at the Annual Meeting of the Library Associates on May 5, 1972, at the University Club in Syracuse. Mrs. Watkins was the Natural Sciences Librarian at the time of her retirement in 1971.
