“Ernst & Young (EY), the global “Big Four” professional services firm formed via the 1989 merger of Ernst & Whinney and Arthur Young & Company, has gifted its historical archives to Case Western Reserve University’s Kelvin Smith Library (KSL). The collection will be known as the Ernst & Young Founders Archive. Ernst & Whinney was founded in Cleveland as Ernst & Ernst in 1903 by Cleveland-born brothers Theodore and Alwin “A.C.” Ernst, who quickly became one of the most transformational figures in Cleveland business and civic history. Arthur Young & Co. was founded in Chicago in 1906 by brothers Arthur and Stanley Young. The archive includes such memorabilia as hand-written accounting ledgers detailing firm transactions from the early 1900s, firm advertising from the 1920s, Ernst & Ernst employee and management communications dating back more than 90 years, awards, vintage photos, Arthur Young’s personal cash book and many other historical items.” (via PRNewswire)
