Charles Waldo Haskins


Headshot of Charles Waldo HaskinsCharles Waldo Haskins (1852 - 1903) was educated at the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute (now the NYU Tandon School of Engineering), and studied art in Paris. Haskins was co-founder of the accounting firm Haskins and Sells, a predecessor to Deloitte. He advocated for reliable accounting principles and worked toward creating the standards, legislation, and bodies that set up the CPA laws in New York that then spread throughout the United States. 

In 1900, he was the founding dean of the earliest professional school of business, then named the New York University School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance. During his tenure at NYU, he served as a professor of auditing and the history of accountancy. Haskins was a frequent lecturer and had a missionary zeal for accounting standards–he once described the public accountant as one who "understands the anatomy and physiology of business and the rules of health of corporations, partnerships, and individual enterprises. He diagnoses abnormal conditions and suggests approved remedies. His study and interest is the soundness of the world of affairs."  Many of Haskins philosophies of business education remain central to Stern's mission.
