Michael Granof, Ernst & Young Distinguished Centennial Professor in Accounting, was recently invited to speak at Wayne State University for their George R. Husband Distinguished Lecture Series. The subject of his lecture was "Government Accounting: Back to Basics and Forward to the Future."
The George R. Husband Distinguished Lecture Series is an annual program commemorating the life, career and influence of one of the most respected and beloved accounting professors in the nation. Professor Husband, a member of the faculty of Wayne State University from 1926 to his untimely death in 1958, and chair of its Department of Accounting, authored six standard accounting texts and continues to rank among the dozen most frequent authors in The Accounting Review. He also served as president of the American Accounting Association from 1955 to 1956.
