The firm of Schmidt, Valentine, Whittemore & Company, P.C. is an outgrowth of a company that was one of the original accounting firms in Pueblo, Colorado - W.P. Turpin, CPA. Although this company was in existence for many years prior, we date our beginning on April 1, 1946, the day Bernard Schmidt began working for Mr. Turpin. After Mr. Turpin died, Davidson Hill, an employee of Mr. Turpin, took over. Bernie joined Dave in the partnership of Hill and Schmidt in 1959. In 1965, Loren McCormack joined the partnership, which became Hill, Schmidt and McCormack. The firm was incorporated as Schmidt, McCormack & Associates, Inc. at the time Dave retired and Virginia Whittemore became a shareholder, August 1, 1971. Daniel Valentine became a shareholder on August 1, 1983, when Loren retired. Bernie retired as a shareholder in 1988. The firm began doing business as Schmidt, Valentine, Whittemore & Company, P.C. effective January 1, 1999.

The firm is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Colorado Society of Certified Public Accountants.
