    memorial:

    On August 14, 2014, the American Accounting Association lost one if its own:  Kathy Casper. Many of you got to know Kathy during her 16 years with the Association.  As the Web and Database Project Manager, she was instrumental in moving us into the 21st century.  In fact, she worked on early web pages and independently designed, developed and implemented our annual meeting system, enhancing it annually based on the feedback she received from the many volunteers who worked with her. She also implemented the new segment meeting system that was introduced over the past year.

    Outside of work, Kathy was very active in the Faith Lutheran Church where she provided service in many ways.  Having done missionary work in Haiti in 2005, Kathy was devoted to fundraising for Haitian children's education and care.  She was also a passionate writer, publishing many articles and poetry.

    Kathy’s quick wit, creativity, broad smile and kind heart will be deeply missed by all who knew her.  If you have memories of Kathy you’d like to share with her sister and three daughters, please email them to info@aaahq.org.  Additionally, in Kathy’s honor, charitable donations can be made to the Faith Lutheran Church for the Haiti Fund care of Faith Lutheran Church, 7750 Beneva Road, Sarasota, FL.

    August 11, 1914 — December 21, 2012
    memorial:

    Herbert E. Miller was born on August 11, 1914 in DeWitt, Iowa. He died in Athens, Georgia on December 21, 2012 following a long illness. Herb received an A.B. in 1936 and an M.A. in 1937 from the University of Iowa and then received a Ph.D. in 1944 from the University of Minnesota. He served on the accounting faculties of Simpson College (1937-38), the University of Minnesota (1938-44), the University of Iowa (1945), the University of Michigan (1946-61), and Michigan State University (1961-70) prior to becoming a partner in Arthur Andersen & Co., where he proceeded to lead a movement to establish and gain accreditation for schools of accounting. In 1978, upon reaching the mandatory retirement age at the firm, he joined the University of Georgia as the first director of its J. M. Tull School of Accounting. He retired from the university in 1983. The School created an accounting chair in his name in 1988.

    Herb wrote numerous articles in professional and academic journals but was known mainly for his textbooks. Beginning in 1951, he joined H. A. Finney as coauthor of the three volumes of Finney’s Principles of Accounting textbooks: introductory, intermediate and advanced. They were, during the 1950s and the 1960s, the best-known and most widely used series of accounting principles textbooks in U.S. college and university accounting programs. He also edited three editions of C.P.A. Review Manual from 1951 to 1966 and in 1972 with George C. Mead.

    He chaired the AAA’s special committee to formulate a revision of its accounting principles statement in 1948. He served as the AAA’s vice-president in 1957 and president in 1965-66. As president, he arranged with Prentice-Hall, Inc., the publisher of his textbooks, to publish the AAA’s 50-year history at no cost to the Association.  He was the last living member of the AICPA’s Committee on Accounting Procedure, on which he served from 1956 to 1959, and he was also a member of the AICPA’s Accounting Principles Board from 1959 to 1963.

    In 1961-62, he was national president of Beta Alpha Psi, and he served as president in 1981 of the Federation of School of Accountancy. He was a member of AICPA’s Council in 1966-69 and of its Board of Directors in 1967-70.

    Herb received the AAA’s Outstanding Accounting Educator Award in 1977, Beta Alpha Psi’s Accountant of the Year Award in 1978, and the AICPA’s Gold Medal Award in 1981. In 1982, he was inducted into the Accounting Hall of Fame.

    Herb was a passionate fan of auto racing and attended competitions all over the country.

    On July 1, 1938, he married Mary Lenore Snitkey, known to all as Lenore. She died on June 11, 2011. They leave one daughter, Barbara Clemmons.

    Herb, who was a doctoral supervisor and close personal friend of the writer, touched the lives of many of today’s accounting academics. Never one to vaunt his achievements, he had a prodigious career as an educator, textbook author, standard setter, and leader of the accounting profession.

The Section launched the project recently with over 130 topic-specific summaries and plans to continue to add more summaries over time.

    Check out this great new resource directly at AuditingResearchSummaries.org or from the link on the Auditing Section's Commons Home Page.

    The Accounting Hall of Fame Elects Two Distinguished Accountants—August 8, 2011
    details:

    Columbus, OH - Two distinguished accountants were inducted into The Accounting Hall of Fame on Monday, August 8, 2011 at the American Accounting Association Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado. The 2011 inductees are Gary John Previts, E. Mandell de Windt Professor and Distinguished University Professor at Case Western University, and Reed Karl Storey, Director of Accounting Research for the Accounting Principles Board and later Senior Technical Advisor to the Financial Accounting Standards Board.

    Honorees are selected by the Accounting Hall of Fame's international board of electors.  Eighty-eight influential and respected accountants from academe, accounting practice, government and business have been elected to the Accounting Hall of Fame since its establishment in 1950 at Ohio State University's Fisher College of Business.

    more:

    GARY JOHN PREVITS:  The history of the accounting profession has dominated his published research which numbers over 70 papers and 7 books, including A History of Accountancy in the United States, the seminal work in the area. Following military service and doctoral study at the University of Florida, he served on the accounting faculties of the University of Alabama and Case Western Reserve University. He has worked tirelessly in support of both professional organizations and governmental agencies--including the American Accounting Association, the Academy of Accounting Historians, the American Institute of CPAs, and the Government Accountability Office—and is the recipient of many honors and awards including the Gold Medal of the AICPA and the American Accounting Association’s Distinguished Accounting Educator Award.

    REED KARL STOREY:  Following military service, doctoral study at the University of California – Berkeley, and service on the accounting faculty at the University of Washington, he was appointed Director of Research for the Accounting Principles Board (APB). When the Financial Accounting Standards Board replaced the APB, he became Senior Technical Advisor to the Board. In these positions he was a strong advocate of a conceptual basis for accounting policy and played a key role in the development of many accounting standards. He died in 1999.
