4 Former Phillips Exeter Academy Staffers Accused of Abuse

An outside investigation into sexual assault allegations at a prestigious New Hampshire prep school has identified four former staff members accused of abuse. 

Phillips Exeter Academy said Thursday the abuses involving the four - three teachers and a psychologist - came to light following an investigation over the past several months by Holland & Knight. The allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior involved eight students over a period that spanned from 1966 to the 1980s. 

Two of those accused - the psychologists Eldeff Schwaab and teacher George Mangan - have died. The other two have been barred from the Exeter campus and, in the one case, stripped of his faculty emeritus status. 

The four bring to seven the number of former staffers accused of sexual misconduct at the school.
