as Recipient of the Schwartz-Gage Award
at Broussard's Restaurant
As members and friends of VCPORA, we all play a part in protecting the French Quarter – we keep abreast of preservation and governance issues; we respond to calls for action by making calls and attending meetings; we work with the Vieux Carré Commission to maintain the neighborhood’s integrity; and we offer our thanks to those who help us.
We also have to deal with a multitude of legal issues, ranging from the simple to the complex. And in many cases, that requires professional legal minds to guide us and to take action.
For years, VCPORA has been able to count on a man who’s led innumerable legal battles on our behalf, and on behalf of the Quarter - and done all of it pro bono.
That man is Stuart H. Smith – our neighbor, our benefactor, and a man of courage and capability who’s been a passionate advocate on behalf of the Vieux Carré.
Stuart was the unanimous choice to be the recipient of this year’s Schwartz Gage Preservation Award. The award, which VCPORA bestows on someone who’s shown exemplary dedication, leadership, and commitment to the French Quarter, is given out only once every two years. It’s named for two remarkable sisters, Eugenie Schwartz and Grace Gage, whose decades of work to protect and preserve the Vieux Carré left a legacy that still benefits us today.
