I've always told a self deprecating joke about how there are no famous CPA's in this country, for that matter, around the world. Where are the Milton Friedman's, F. Lee Bailey's or Jim Cramer's for our profession.
Well, I was wrong. An article in accounting today mentioned the Baruch College accounting program which has produced "some of the most illustrious figures in US accounting history: Abraham Briloff, Charles Dreyfus, Eli Mason, Stan Ross, Larry Zicklin and many more."
Where's the paparazzi? Where are the entourages? I wonder how many groupies lost their underwear around these guys?
