1990 OX. Discovered 1990 July 19 by E. F. Helin at Palomar.

Named for Occidental College, a prestigious institution established in Los Angeles in 1887. Occidental is widely known for its outstanding liberal arts curricula of music, art, and political and physical science. The discoverer wishes to honor her alma mater on the occasion of Founders Day (1995 Apr. 19) and to pay special tribute to president John Brooks Slaughter, the faculty and students. May Oxy continue to provide its students with an exemplary educational experience, always inspiring excellence, equity, community and service for and from its student body with its celestial namesake elevated to heavenly rank.
