"One cannot readily conceive of a painter or sculptor who would not have studied the history of art, or of a composer who would not have a knowledge of the history of music. This is an integral part of their studies and is included in their curricula. Such is not the case with accounting . . . While many sciences have their history, that of accounting remains to be written. It is strange that the accountant follows the guidelines without the desire to give credit or honor to those who developed them."
