may also be included in this list of legal attributes.6 The American legal
community had inherited from English law only a juristic concept of the
corporation that applied more or less equally to all types of incorporated bodies.
Curiously, the nation that had colonized the New World and established a trading

The former became the legal system of the church, and the latter that of English
common law. In this manner English leaders separated the concerns of the
church from those of secular administration. During the fourteenth and fifteenth
centuries English jurisprudence slowly digested the concept of a corporation and,
under Henry VIII, integrated it into common law. From England, corporate law
accompanied the early settlers to North America where it sustained the use of
charters for the ...

concept of the corporation reveals that the origins of the good corporation go
back to the early decades of this century, especially the 1920s. American
executives in the decades of 1910-29 were trying to accommodate trends in
public opinion that were violently ...

But there was still a very long distance between McCallum's concept of the
corporation's structure and function and that which we have today. Of the many
