The accounting Public Oversight Board (POB), an independent private sector body, was established in 1977, held its first meeting in 1978, and was terminated in 2002 at the creation of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB). During the last twelve years of its history, the POB honored sixteen individuals with the John J. McCloy Award for Outstanding Contributions to Audit Excellence. These individuals included McCloy, the POB’s first chairman, and fifteen others who made great contributions to auditing in America during the later years of the twentieth century. This manuscript profiles McCloy and the individuals who were recipients of the McCloy Award. These recipients included some of the best known names in the accounting profession, plus a few who were not so well known. Some were not even accountants.
