Three academics from the U.K. who have written a book about auditing, and a Virginia professor who has developed a taxation education curriculum, will receive awards from Deloitte & Touche’s not-for-profit Deloitte Foundation.

The 2007 Deloitte/AAA Wildman Medal will go to Professor Vivien Beattie of the University of Glasgow, and Professors Stella Fearnley and Richard Brandt of the University of Portsmouth, for their 2001 book “Behind Closed Doors: What Company Audit Is Really About.”

The award comes with a $7,500 honorarium and is being presented on August 7 by Deloitte and the American Accounting Association at the AAA’s annual meeting in Chicago.

Deloitte, along with the American Taxation Association, will also hand out the 2007 Deloitte/ATA Teaching Innovation Award for excellence in tax curricula development. It will go to Dr. Mary Margaret Frank of the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business on August 6. She will receive a $5,000 honorarium for developing the curriculum for “How to Put More Strategy in Your ‘Taxes and Business Strategy’ Course: A Case-Method Approach.”
