Evolution Continues

BY BONNIE M. SPANKE

I found the article on the history of our accounting profession (“‘No One Stands Still in Public Accounting,’” JofA, June00, page 67) very intriguing. It was compelling to read about the profession and its evolution, and interesting to compare the profession from yesterday to today and to the future.

How we all should appreciate our computers, faxes and other conveniences! It’s amazing to think that the things that simplify our life today will be museum pieces in future generations.
