Résumé

Based on transatlantic correspondences, public accountants’ memoirs and professional publications, this paper explores the strategies of the British professional accountants who moved to the United States between the 1880s and the early 1900s. Alternately offering their services as British expatriates or as US immigrants, they used co-ethnicity and intellectual capital as a set of flexible resources to advance their professional goals in the turbulent economic and political environment of the time. Their transnational experience highlights the pervasiveness of negotiations between professionals, their clients and state institutions on the models and standards of financial expertise.
