standing in the country, was founded in 1900
at the request of the New York Society of Certi-
fied Public Accountants. Courses in Accounting,
Law, and Economics were first given at nightg
subsequently, as the day session was added, the
curriculum was enlarged and the department
organized mainly for the purpose of training
accountants. Professor vllilliam 'If Dennis,
chairman of the department at the time of its
inception, was succeeded by Professor John T.
XVildman and later by Dean john 'l'. Madden.
Professor Arthur Rosenkampff has served in that
capacity since 1922,

formally organized in IQID after the first
course in finance was taught by Dean .Ioseph
French johnson. As interest in the field increased,
additional courses were offered. The forerunner
of todays lleparlinent was headed in IQI5 by

rection a course in Federal taxes was added in
