Early Challenge To The Accountant Stereotype? The Accountant As Hero In Late Victorian Romantic Fiction, Stephen P. Walker Oct 1995

Early Challenge To The Accountant Stereotype? The Accountant As Hero In Late Victorian Romantic Fiction, Stephen P. Walker

Accounting Historians Notebook

Recently, increasing attention has been focused on how conventionalised images of the accountant were created (Bougen, 1994). As the recent contribution to the Notebook by Boys (1994) reveals, previous to the dominance of the visual media (Beard, 1994), a potentially fruitful source of evidence of stereotyped representations of accountants is the novel. The Accountant by F.H. Mel (1894), is a rare instance of a work of romantic fiction which had as its central character an accountant.

Accounting Firms Histories In Teaching Auditing And Financial Accounting, Daniel T. Simon Oct 1995

Accounting Firms Histories In Teaching Auditing And Financial Accounting, Daniel T. Simon

Accounting Historians Notebook

This article does not attempt to provide a complete remedy for the lack of historical awareness of accounting history by either students or professors. Instead it provides a few pedagogical examples of how the history of accounting can be incorporated into conventional lectures on financial accounting and auditing in a way that will both introduce students to a historical perspective on accounting and contribute to an improved understanding of the basic subject matter. A rich source of accounting history is found in the official or semi-official histories of large accounting firms. Beginning in 1951 and continuing until the early 1980s, …

P.K. is still practicing as an attorney in Memphis, and we had the opportunity to meet there on June 16, 1995 to discuss the founders and the founding of the firm. To prepare for this interview, I studied (1) 15 Years of Total Involvement: A History of Seidman & Seidman, (2) A Time for Building: The Third Migration, 1880-1920 in the series The Jewish People in America, and …

Edward Stamp: The Australian Connection, Robert William Gibson Oct 1995

Edward Stamp: The Australian Connection, Robert William Gibson

Accounting Historians Notebook

There could be little dispute about the fact that the late Edward Stamp was inextricably involved with events surrounding the formation of the Accounting Standards Board as it came to be called in the United Kingdom. However, the power of his influence and the background driving his activities are matters of contention. This note suggests that commentators, while focusing on the United Kingdom, may have overlooked an important factor in the Australian connection.

In Memory Of A Statesman: David Solomons (1912-1995), Stephen A. Zeff Apr 1995

In Memory Of A Statesman: David Solomons (1912-1995), Stephen A. Zeff

Accounting Historians Notebook

David Solomons died of cancer on February 12, 1995, at his home in Swarthmore, PA. His presence and words of counsel will be sorely missed. He was truly a statesman in our field and a craftsman of the English language who performed all of his many assignments: lecturing, research, writing and advising policy makers: at a uniformly high level. He argued vigorously and persuasively for the principles in which he believed.
