The George R. Husband Lecture is convened by the Wayne State University Mike Ilitch School of Business. Husband was an accounting educator and a leader in his field. His former students and admirers thought so highly of him that they endowed a professorship, scholarship and annual Distinguished Lecture Series in his memory nearly 40 years after his untimely death in 1958.
