Fritz lived in West Philadelphia somewhere near Baltimore Avenue. He was enthusiastically interested in many subjects, including music and botany. I remember his inviting me and some other friends to his apartment one evening to witness the flowering of a night-blooming cereus while we enjoyed wine and listened to Ella Fitzgerald recordings. - Bob Stewart

The NASIG (North American Serials Interest Group) Fritz Schwartz Education Scholarship was named in honor of Fritz Schwartz, who was a well-known and highly respected authority on Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), the Internet, and library standards. A frequent speaker at NASIG annual conferences, his last NASIG appearance was to conduct a highly rated workshop at the 10th Conference at Duke University in 1995.
