John Queenan, former AICPA president, dead.

John W. Queenan, 86, the 1961-62 president of the American Institute of CPAs, died recently following surgery for a broken hip. (The title of the chief elected officer was changed in 1974 to chairman of the AICPA board of directors.) In 1968, he was awarded the CPA Gold Medal Award for Distinguished Service to the Profession, the Institute's highest honor.

Queenan began his accounting career in 1927 when he joined Haskins & Sells, which later became Deloitte Haskins & Sells and is now Deloitte & Touche. He became a partner of the firm in 1939 and managing partner in 1956. He retired in 1970.

Queenan was a founding member of the Financial Accounting Standards Board and a cochairman of the National Conference of Lawyers and Certified Public Accountants. In 1971, President Richard M. Nixon appointed him to the Wage and Price Control Board, created to rein in inflation. In 1976, he was elected to the Ohio State University Accounting Hall of Fame.
