    Charles T Horngren will be missed
    blog entry posted November 6, 2011 by Julie Smith David 

    Charles HorngrenCharles T. Horngren was born in a blue collar neighborhood of Milwaukee on October 28, 1926, and he died in Palo Alto on October 23, 2011. He grew up an avid baseball fan and for a while wanted to become a major league player until reality set in. Following high school graduation, he entered the U.S. Army. In 1946, he enrolled at Marquette University, where he majored in accounting. In his junior year, he took a part-time position with the Veterans Administration to tutor homebound, disabled veterans. After graduating as class valedictorian in 1949 with a B.S. degree, he worked in public accounting. Yet he soon opted instead to teach a heavy load of accounting courses at a for-profit business college, where he discovered that he loved teaching. In 1950, he entered the M.B.A. program at Harvard Business School. There he focused on decision making by general management and developed a better appreciation of accounting as a decision-making tool.

In memory of our colleagues...
