Dr. Bill Darrow was a member of the CDC task force that investigated the cause of a mysterious and deadly outbreak of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) in summer 1981. He served as the Chief of the Behavioral and Prevention Research Branch for the STD/HIV Division at CDC until his retirement from civil service.
