George J. Staubus, the Michael Chetkovich professor emeritus at UC Berkley's Haas School of Business, died on March 21 in Oakland, CA, from bone marrow failure. He was 87.
Professor Staubus dedicated his life's work not only to the teaching and research of accounting but to continued improvement of the standards and practices of financial reporting. Staubus' colleagues say his work developing the "decision-usefulness theory of accounting" is an important contribution to financial accounting theory in the twentieth century.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The Research Committee is currently accepting proposals and completed works for evaluation for possible publication in Studies in Accounting Research (SAR). SAR is a prestigious monograph series of the AAA that provides an outlet for seminal and innovative research not bounded by the usual space and topic constraints present in our journals. SAR is of significant benefit to authors in exploring a topic in great depth and as a resource for other researchers.
