A native of Hillsboro, Kansas, and a graduate of West Point, Arthur Hazelton Carter earned distinction both as a soldier and as a civilian. He began his career in the military and rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel by the end of World War I. He married Elijah Sells' daughter, Marjorie, in 1910. After the war, Carter was persuaded to join his father-in-law's firm, a predecessor firm of Deloitte & Touche. He duly qualified as a CPA and in 1922 was admitted to the firm.

In 1930, at the age of 43, Carter became managing partner, a position he held for over a decade. He built an international presence for the firm and substantially increased the number of partners. From 1941 to the end of World War II, he served in Washington, D.C., as fiscal director of the Army Service Forces. He was promoted to major general in 1943, returned to Haskins & Sells in 1945, and retired in 1947.

Carter is one of the many Deloitte & Touche people upon whom the AICPA has bestowed its highest honor, the Gold Medal Award for Distinguished Service to the Profession.
