Dr. Richard Strauss Biography-Wiki
Dr. Richard Strauss was an American unassuming and little-known sports physician at Ohio State University, who sexually abused 177 male students during a span of almost two decades.
The Chicago native received his medical degree at the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine in 1964. He worked in a U of C clinic a year out of med school, but most of his career was spent at Ohio State.
Findings reported Friday in the new OSU-backed investigation are that Strauss groped, ogled, and sexually assaulted young men on campus from 1979 to 1997. That period was essentially his entire career at Ohio State during which he mainly treated athletes.

The family of a former Ohio State University team doctor accused by athletes of sexual misconduct says it is “shocked and saddened” by the allegations and is cooperating with the school’s independent investigation.
The Columbus Dispatch in a story published online Saturday said the statement was emailed by Scott Strauss. He’s the son of the late Dr. Richard Strauss, who killed himself in 2005 at age 67. The statement said Strauss’s family learned from news reports about the allegations that athletes were fondled by Strauss during medical examinations. The allegations date back to the 1970s.

Dr. Richard Strauss Scandal
Strauss was born in Chicago in July 1938. From there, his family made its way to Michigan, where Strauss graduated in 1956 from Les Cheneaux Community Schools in Cedarville. He attended Michigan State University, graduating with a chemistry degree in 1960.
Strauss’s medical career then began back in Chicago, where he attended the University of Chicago School of Medicine from 1960 to 1964. His classmates from that time remember Strauss as a well-respected, hard worker.
Classmate Robert Roskoski said he kept up with Strauss for about 10 years after medical school before losing touch with him. The Richard Strauss under posthumous fire for allegations of sexual misconduct is not the young Strauss that Roskoski remembers, adding that his reaction when he heard about the allegations was “disbelief.”
