Sternberg, Eugene David
Eugene David Sternberg - Canyon Courier - June 10, 2005 - Evergreen, Colorado - Noted architect and planner Eugene D. Sternberg died June 4 at his home in Evergreen. He was 90 years old. Gene had two passions in life: architecture and family. Gene and his wife Barbara, whom he married in 1946, have five children, eight grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. His legacy to them runs from a love of soccer and sketching, to genuinely “seeing” the elements that make up the built environment, distinguishing good design from bad. He believed that a healthy and beautiful man-made environment, in harmony with nature, would bolster the basic goodness of people and make possible a world where cooperation for the good of the community could overcome hatred and prejudice. Eugene David Sternberg was born on January 15, 1915 in Bratislava, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. He was one of ten children and grew up in Munkacs, Ruthenia, part of the new country of Czechoslovakia which was created after World War I. Gene began painting at age 9. Following his high school graduation, his artistic talent won him a coveted place at the Czech University School of Architecture in Prague. In 1939, after Hitler had taken over Czechoslovakia, Gene traveled to England where he had been offered a scholarship to continue his studies. When England declared war on Germany in September 1939, Gene was cut off from all communication with his family. It was only as the war in Europe was ending in 1945 that Gene learned that his father and mother, grandfather and grandmother, two older sisters and a 4-year old niece had perished in the Holocaust. Four of his sisters and three brothers, who were all in labor camps, survived. After qualifying as a licensed architect and planner, Gene worked in the busy office of Sir Patrick Abercrombie in London where he was involved in planning to rebuild neighborhoods destroyed by bombing as well as new towns. In 1946, he was invited to teach at Cornell University in New York. Gene came to Denver in 1947 as a professor of design at the newly formed School of Architecture and Planning at the University of Denver. He taught there until the school closed in 1952. Gene continued to support architectural education in the state and region through part time teaching and financial contribution to the University of Colorado's architectural program. Gene opened his own office in 1949. He believed in the importance of architecture in small communities and designed over 400 buildings throughout Colorado, Nebraska, and Wyoming. As a consistent supporter of affordable housing, he felt strongly that good design and economy were not mutually exclusive. Gene was appointed in 1955 to serve on the Colorado State Board of Examiners for Architects, with a mission from the governor to increase the number of architects licensed in Colorado. He served two five-year terms, part of the time as chairman. In 1965 he was awarded the commission to design the new Denver General Hospital based on a nationally juried competition. In recognition of his “outstanding service and contribution to the University of Colorado at Denver,” Gene was awarded the Mack Easton Distinguished Service Award on May 17, 1986. On May 19, 2004, Historic Littleton, Inc, and the Englewood Historical Society honored Gene for a lifetime of architectural achievement and community service. Although Eugene and Barbara moved from Denver to live full time in Evergreen in 1972, their connection with that community dated back to 1949 when they bought land on Blue Creek Road and built a cabin. Gene retired from active practice in 1977 and turned his energies to volunteering. He served ten years on the Jefferson County Planning Commission. He helped form the Evergreen Design Task Force aimed at stimulating better design in Evergreen. He volunteered his expertise to design projects for the Senior Resource Center, the Evergreen Ambulance Facility, the Evergreen Recreation Center, and the new county administration buildings on Jefferson County Parkway. Because of their long association with Evergreen and the rapid changes transforming the community, Gene and Barbara became interested in documenting Evergreen's past and its on-going development. This led to the publication of “Evergreen: Our Mountain Community” in 1987. In 1994, Gene and Barbara were two of the founding members of Art for the Mountain Community whose mission is to increase interest and support for art in public places. This group has commissioned statues for the Evergreen Library, Lake House, Hiwan Homestead, and has developed an annual program where artists are invited to display sculptures in the community. In 1992, Gene was named the Evergreen Community Person of the Year and in 2004 Gene and Barbara were inducted into the Jefferson County Historical Commission Hall of Fame as “Historical Authors, Community Advocates.” Gene is survived by Barbara, his wife of almost 59 years; children: Elizabeth Schneider of Gardner, Colorado, Francesca Starr (Donna Naone) of Denver, Dr. Patrick Sternberg (Terri Krug) of La Veta, Colorado, John Sternberg (David Dickmann) of Denver, and Jennifer Boone (Casey) of Evergreen; grandchildren: Andrew Schneider (Jeanne) of Evergreen, Jeffrey Schneider of Denver, Zane Sternberg of La Veta, Steele Sternberg (Elizabeth Steele, mother) of Denver, Megan Boone (John Witucki) of Denver, Logan Boone, Kelsey Boone, and Riley Boone of Evergreen, and great-grandchildren: Kyla Mahan of Durango, Katelin, Daniel, and Lucy Schneider of Evergreen. In addition he is survived by his brother Bill Sternberg of New York and two sisters, Hansi Lynfield (Geoffrey) and Magda Bader of Florida. A celebration of Gene's life will be held at 6 p.m., Saturday, June 18, at the Lake House in Evergreen. In lieu of flowers or gifts, donations may be made to Mount Evans Hospice (P. O. Box 2770, Evergreen, CO 80437-2770), Art for the Mountain Community (P.O. Box 3657, Evergreen, CO 80437-3657), or Jefferson County Outdoor Lab Foundation (201 Evans Ranch Road, Evergreen, CO 80439).

He spent his childhood in Ossining, N.Y., and, later as a teenager, stuck out on his own working for the Bones Bros. Ranch near Birney, Mont., as a horse wrangler and cowboy. He became an accomplished horse trainer specializing in Thoroughbreds. He broke and trained horses in southeastern Montana and the Sheridan, Wyo., area. On Oct. 27, 1938, he married Grace Shaw, who preceded him in death after 50 years of marriage. He moved to Raton, N.M., in 1946 where he broke, trained and raced Thoroughbreds for the CS Ranch and La Loma Stud Stables. In 1947, he moved to California and operated a public racing stable while campaigning at Bay Meadows, Golden Gate, Tanforan, Hollywood Park, Del Mar and Santa Anita. He gained a reputation as an outstanding horseman. During the California years, he shipped his stable to Denver or Raton to race those summers with great success. In 1954, he suspended the public stable and in partnership with Dr. Allan Edmondson, DVM, established his first Thoroughbred farm in Puente, Calif. In 1956, he moved to Littleton, Colo., where he resumed operation of a public racing stable and established another Thoroughbred farm operation. 1959 saw the development of the renowned Stewart Thoroughbreds Farm at Crow, Colo., 30 miles south of Pueblo, which was recognized as the leading and most innovative facility of its type for the day. The ranch, as well as his horsemanship style, were frequently imitated. During the Colorado years, in addition to operating the farm, he enjoyed enormous success racing in Denver, Raton and Albuquerque and retired from racing in 1969. He continued to operate the farm until 1988, finally retiring after more than 60 years in the Thoroughbred racing industry that fondly knew him as "The King of the Rocky Mountains."
