Dr. Reginald Archibald, Former Madison Square Boys & Girls Club Volunteer, Identified in Hundreds of Lawsuits filed Under the New York Child Victims Act
Founded in 1894, Madison Square Boys & Girls Club offered recreational activities for youth as an effort to reduce the number of youth people involved in gang-related activity. While originally operating as a mission of the Madison Square church, in 1902 Madison Square Boys & Girls relocated and became an organization separate from the Madison Square church.
Madison Square Boys & Girls Club was sued in numerous cases under the New York Child Victims Act (NY CVA). The vast majority of the claims relate to the misconduct of the Dr. Reginald Archibald, a pediatric endocrinologist who was employed by Rockefeller University Hospital and volunteered as a physician at Madison Square Boys & Girls Club’s clubhouse, in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Madison Square Boys & Girls Club has been named as a defendant in lawsuits involving at least 149 plaintiffs, in which the majority of those lawsuits also name Dr. Archibald. Unfortunately, we believe it is highly likely there are more victims out there who have yet to come forward or take legal action.
