Ms. Lenore A. Briloff and Ms. Alice Ebenstein
Abraham Briloff created the Edith M. Briloff Memorial Scholarship in memory of his beloved wife, Edith, in 2006. Abe Briloff (’37), Emanuel Saxe Distinguished Professor of Accountancy emeritus at Baruch College, has been called “the most famous accountant in the world” and “the philosopher- king” of his profession. In the 1990’s, he was among the very first to sound the alarm over self-serving and corrupt practices that damaged the integrity of accountancy, helped spawn the Enron debacle, and led, ultimately, to the reforms of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. During his long and fruitful career, Professor Briloff has authored several books and countless articles in scholarly and professional journals. Abe Briloff has been a part of Baruch College since the 1930s when he was the prize pupil of the revered Emanuel Saxe during the Depression. Briloff received his BBA in 1937 and was appointed to the faculty full-time in 1944. He retired from Baruch’s Stan Ross Department of Accountancy in 1987, but continued to be very involved with the college.
