Shaping the Accountancy Profession (RLE Accounting)
The Story of Three Scottish Pioneers
Edited by Thomas A. Lee
Routledge – 2014 – 268 pages
The emergence of an accountancy profession in Scotland is described in the context of three leading Chartered Accountants, whose careers spanned the second half of the nineteenth century and early part of the twentieth century: George Auldjo Jamieson (21828-1900), Alexander Sloan (1843-1927) and Richard Brown (1856-1918). Each biography reveals the man involved in the professionalisation events, and is described within a broader personal context associated with Victorian Scotland.
