Wall of Recognition
Felix Anton Schwarz
Distinguished Citizen
Mr. Schwarz was truly a devoted public servant, dedicating over 50 years of work to his community in various ways. Whether starting out working on the Distant Early Warning Line in Alaska and assisting the Inuit families with their health needs, serving as Director of the Department of Health Education and Scientific Programs, teaching psychology at California State University, San Francisco (while earning two Masters degrees at U.C. Berkeley), developing the Orange County Allied Behavioral Care Plan, to ending as the Executive Director of the Health Care Council of Orange County, Mr. Schwarz never ceased to educate his community. He dedicated the last 20 years of his career to promoting affordability and access to improved health care for all Orange County residents. He emanated a strong voice and presence in our health community, and he continued to do so into his 80th year.
