As the accountancy profession continues to grow and develop it is important to look back and see how and why the profession is where it is today and recognise the significance of the individuals who contributed to its development. This book brings together biographies of some 37 twentieth century leaders of the British accountancy profession. They include amongst others partners in audit firms, accountants in business, academics and employees of accountancy bodies. The twentieth century saw significant change in the profession with the growth of leading accountancy firms, an expansion of the role of accountants in industry, the growth of accounting academe, the emergence of standard setting and the enshrinement of the ‘true and fair view’ in company law. The biographies in this book highlight some of the roles played by these individuals in these events.
