INSIDE ASID/ Above the IN MEMORIAM NORM IN BUSINESS AND PHILANTHROPY, NORMAN POLSKY, HON. FASID, STROVE FOR EXCELLENCE/ AT SIX MONTHS’ old, Norman Polsky took first place in a “perfect baby” competition, and he never looked back. From successful businessman to honored philanthropist, he spent a lifetime doing good by doing his best. Norm, as his many friends knew him, is familiar to most ASID members through the two Polsky awards—established in 1983 in memoriam of his son, Joel—given each year in recognition of excellence in design scholarship and research. Over the years he has contributed more than $1 million to the ASID Foundation alone, as well as providing endowments to foundations operated by IBD, FIDER (now CIDA), IFMA, IDEC and CFID, along with some 20 other nonprofit and charitable organizations. “I have had several lives, and I am thankful for all of them.” 20 icon november/december/10 the magazine of the american society of interior designers
