October 1998 Issue


Professor Philip Wolitzer, professor emeritus at Long Island University and a frequent contributor to The CPA Journal, will be honored on October 15, 1998, by the dedication of the Philip Wolitzer Complex on the Brooklyn Campus. The complex is a suite of four rooms that have been recently renovated and will accommodate business, educational, and technical functions.

Philip Wolitzer began his teaching career with LIU in 1947. In 1964 he became a full professor, and between 1965 and 1983 he was chair of the accounting department. He continues to teach a full load of classes at LIU. He has remained active with the New York State Society of CPAs, for which he has served in many capacities including member of the board of directors, committee chair, member of the executive committee, secretary, and vice president. He is the recipient of two of the Society's highest honors: the outstanding CPA in education award and the distinguished service award. He has been affiliated with Beta Gamma Sigma, the AICPA, the American Accounting Association, the Accountants Club of America, and the American Association of University Professors.

Professor Wolitzer has published in The Journal of Accountancy, The Accounting Seminar, The CPA Journal, and Taxation for Accountants.

According to LIU, donations are still being received to help in the reconstruction and refurbishment of the complex. *
