Two distinguished AAA members will be inducted into The Accounting Hall of Fame on August 13 during a breakfast ceremony at the American Accounting Association's Annual Meeting in Atlanta.

The Accounting Hall of Fame was established in 1950 at The Ohio State University's Fisher College of Business and has since honored 69 influential and respected accountants from academe, accounting practice, government, and business. The Hall of Fame's international board of electors selects the honorees.

Nicholas Dopuch, Moog Professor of Accounting at Washington University in St. Louis, will be inducted for his vision, energy and writing which have shaped the development of accounting research for four decades. The presentation to Professor Dopuch will be made by Sidney Davidson, Professor Emeritus and former Dean of the University of Chicago's Graduate School of Business.

James Don Edwards, Tull Professor of Accounting Emeritus at the University of Georgia, will be inducted for his many contributions to accounting that bridge both the academic and professional domains of the field. The presentation to Edwards will be made by Herbert E. Miller, Professor of Accounting Emeritus at the University of Georgia and former partner in Arthur Andersen & Co. (now Andersen LLP). Professor Edwards is a past president of the AAA (1970–71).
