The E.F. Venzie Award
In 1964, upon the death of Edmond F. Venzie of Philadelphia, the executive committee of the old Contracting Plasterers' and Lathers' International Association immediately recognized Venzie's many services by establishing CPLIA's premier award in his name. The E.F. Venzie Award was retired in 1981 after being awarded to only 13 people.
