Nicholas Dopuch (1929–2018), most recently on the faculty of the Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis, was an extraordinary accounting thinker, influential journal editor, prolific accounting researcher, and treasured colleague and mentor. By documenting his early upbringing, academic career, and professional activities, this memorial article summarizes the profound impact that Professor Dopuch had on the accounting academy and the many scholars and students with whom he worked. The article also analyzes Dopuch's body of scholarship, and, in so doing, complements Kinney and Libby's (1999) earlier assessment of his foundational contribution to research on credible financial reporting.
