Born on July 27, 1887 in Syracuse, New York, Schwarz became a painter, illustrator and teacher, mainly active in Vermont and New York.  He lived in Sandgate, VT (Bennington County).  He was an alternate delegate from Sandgate to the 1948 Republican Convention, and did some painting and illustrating there.  His father was Adolph H. Schwarz who was prominent in Syracuse, his mother was Mary C. Tefft, and he was the grandson of William Tefft, also a prominent citizen of Syracuse, NY.
