It was his deep understanding of the subject matter and his dynamic delivery that endeared him to so many Kellogg students over the years. Among the many awards he received for teaching excellence are: the American Accounting Association's Outstanding Educator Award; the Illinois CPA Society's Outstanding Educator Award; the Sidney J.
