The president of the University of Michigan has apologized to “anyone who was harmed” by Anderson, a late doctor after several former students said he molested them during medical exams at the school. One man said Thursday, Feb. 20, 2020, that Dr. Anderson molested him during a medical exam in 1968 or 1969. Police started investigating the onetime director of the University Health Service and physician for the football team in July 2018 after a former student athlete alleged abuse by Anderson in the 1970s.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — The University of Michigan is attempting to reach more than 300,00 former students, encouraging them to speak with investigators from a law firm it hired to lead a probe into a deceased doctor accused of molesting people going back decades.

The Ann Arbor school said Tuesday it is contacting former students, who were on campus from the mid-1960s through the early 2000s.

The school is asking them to call WilmerHale if they experienced abuse by the Dr. Robert E. Anderson or have information that may be relevant.
