Marjorie Elliot Drayton von Moschzisker (1922-) is an American artist born November 26th, 1922 mostly working in portrait painting. She married Michael von Moschzisker (1918-1995) who was a lawyer in Philadelphia. Michael's father was Robert von Moschzisker (1870-1939), who was a justice of the Supreme court on Pennsylvania from 1909 - 1921 and Chief Justice from 1921 - 1930. Marjorie's husband Michael created the 'one-percent-for-the-arts' program in March 1959 - which requires any new construction to set aside one percent of its budget for the arts. Since the inception of the Program, hundreds of public art have been installed in all areas of Philadelphia. He was also the chairman of the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority. Marjorie had four children. Of them, her daughter Susan, former actress married to fellow actor David Morse, now author wrote 'The Habit' in 2011.
