Patients Detail Alleged Abuse by Rockefeller University Hospital Pediatrician
The late Dr. Reginald Archibald worked at Rockefeller University Hospital from the 1940s until his retirement in 1982. Archibald studied childhood growth and many alleged victims, mostly boys, said they participated in a free growth study. He died in 2007.
Two attorneys represent more than 100 alleged victims and said they believe there are hundreds of victims in total.
Both men said the doctor took photos of them naked. The attorneys for both men said they want to know where those photos are, but the hospital hasn’t provided information.
But an attorney for dozens of the victims said the hospital should have done more.
“I think they had enough information they could’ve stopped it in its course,” attorney Jennifer Freeman said.
