East Brunswick, N.J. (Jan. 2, 2004) -- For accountants bemoaning the lack of recognition given the profession under the U.S. Postal Service's commemorative series of stamps, New Jersey CPA firm Mendlowitz Weitsen has just the answer -- it issues its own commemorative labels devoted to accounting.

The firm has issued its second set of labels memorializing the role accountants have played throughout history. The labels, which the firm puts on materials it sends in the mail, depict Roderigo Sanchez, the first accountant in America, accompanying Columbus on his first voyage to the new world. The picture is taken from the famous painting The Landing of Columbus in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.
