SCHWARZ, Dr. James Conrad

Dr. James Conrad Schwarz, of Storrs died Thursday (May 15, 2003) at home, surrounded by his family, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born September 19, 1936 in Hartford, and was raised in Harrisburg, PA. He was the son of the late William and Violet Schwarz. He is survived by his wife Dr. Carolina Herfkens, of Storrs, and his three daughters, Cynthia Streams of Huntsville, AL, Pamela Cheney of Mansfield Center, and Nancy Weber of Fullerton, CA. He has been a professor of psychology at the University of Connecticut in Storrs since 1972 where he served on the teaching faculty of the graduate training program in clinical psychology. By his colleagues, he was valued for his gentle nature and personal integrity and for the many years of excellent work as chairman of the Ethics Committee. Dr. Schwarz previously taught at Syracuse University and Bowling Green State University in Ohio. He also maintained a private practice for over thirty years. He obtained a Masters degree in 1961 and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology in 1963, both at Ohio State University. He earned a Bachelors of Science degree from Penn State University with honors, Phi Beta Kappa. Throughout his distinguished career Dr. Schwarz was a prolific researcher and devoted to the advancement of science in the field of psychology. His research included many studies and publications on the effects of family dynamics on personality development in children. In 1989 he coauthored a book on insecure romantic attachments in adults. He also created a computer-based reading program to help remediate the reading problems of children with dyslexia. He was a consulting editor for Developmental Psychology and he regularly reviewed manuscripts for numerous professional publications. Throughout his career he derived much satisfaction from mentoring and inspiring countless students, many of whom have gone on to distinguished careers of their own. In his private life, Conrad loved sports; he particularly enjoyed a good game of tennis and he was an avid Huskies fan. Gardening was a life-long passion. He and his wife Carolina liked to travel and spend time with children, grandchildren, and friends. Besides his wife and daughters, Conrad is survived by three sons-in-law, Eric Streams, Richard Cheney, and Robert Weber, and six precious grandchildren, Rachel, Grant, Alexa, Brian, Lauren, and Allison. He also leaves a brother, William Schwarz, of Rochester, NY, and two sisters and their husbands, Sandy and Howard Mazza of Hayesville, NC, and Marian and Terry Smith of Harrisburg, PA. On his wife's side he leaves a brother and sister-in-law and their spouses, Nico and Ans Herfkens, and Jeanne Herfkens and Albert Hoogendoorn, of the Netherlands, and numerous nieces and nephews both here and abroad. He also leaves long-term friends Herbert and Phyllis Getter, Charles Lowe, Steve Marksen, Bill Wickless, and Steve Dauer. A Memorial celebration to honor Dr. Schwarz will be held on Sunday, May 25, at 5 p.m. at the Storrs Congregational Church, located at the corner of route 195 and North Eagleville Road, in Storrs.
