story by trey jones To keep pace with the increasing number of career op- tions in accounting, the University elevated its accounting program to a separate School of Accountancy in 1979. As a subject, however, accountancy has been a major part of the Uni- versity ' s curriculum since 1848. A national leader in accounting educa- tion, the School of Accountancy was the first in the state ti receive accreditation of it ' s bachelor ' s and master ' s accounting pro- grams. The School of Accountancy houses two national research centers: The National Tax History Research Center, co-sponsored by The Academy of Accounting Historians, and the National EDP Audit Archival Cen- ter. In addition, the School of Accountancy has two computer laboratories with seventy personal computers available for use. The research centers and computer laboratories are valuable resources for accountancy students. The School ' s commitment to excel- lence has reaped results in the form of gen- erous donations from alumni and friends. The national offices of highly respected firms have made major donations to the school for scholarships and the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment. The largest fundraising campaign ever undertaken by the school was the 1984 drive to fund an endowment to honor long time faculty member H. Eugene Peery.
