Harvey Bender, who ran the human genetics program at the University of Notre Dame has died, according to the school. He was 78. Bender began teaching at Notre Dame in 1960, and his daughter Leslie estimates that he taught more than 14,500 students in his years there, the South Bend Tribune reports. "Dr. Bender was a fine man, a wonderful faculty member and he was very good to me," says Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, the president emeritus at Notre Dame. "I was very happy to have him here and he and his works has had a lasting effect on the lives of thousands of students over the years."
