Nomination Form – 
2020 GEORGE E. BRADY SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION

Purpose and Overview

Background:   The late George E. Brady was a member of AGA from 1957 until 1996. He served as the Boston Chapter President of AGA (1964-1965). George graduated from Bentley College in 1933 and went to work for United Fruit as an accountant. In 1941 he joined the federal government as an accountant.  In 1954 George applied for his CPA license where he had to demonstrate that he had the requisite two years of public accounting experience.  At that time, government service was not automatically accepted as public accounting experience. George met with the licensing board and successfully demonstrated that his 13 years of government service had exposed him to the same experiences encountered by public accountants.  As a result of his tenacity, the board granted him his CPA license. He was the first person to have government service recognized as public accounting experience by the licensing board.   George retired in June 1973 as Chief of the Boston Branch Office, Contract Audit Division, Auditor General, USAF after 31 years of government service.
