Thurston, John B.

1908-1951 A U.S. internal auditing pioneer. Thurston was one of three "founding fathers" of the *Institute of Internal Auditors (HA), along with *Victor Z. Brink and *Robert B. Milne. He was the first president of the IIA on its founding in 1941. It has been suggested that "without question, John B. Thurston deserves to be called the ‘father of the Institute of Internal Auditors’. It was clearly through his efforts that the creation and development of the Institute was accelerated by many years" (Brink, 1977, 9). Following his death, the IIA established the Thurston Award in his honor. The award is given for outstanding articles in the IIA magazine * Internal Auditor.
