William Taliaferro Close

b. 7 June 1924, d. 15 January 2009
     William Taliaferro Close was born on 7 June 1924 at Greenwich, CT.1 He was the son of Edward Bennett Close and Marjorie Merriweather Post. William Taliaferro Close married Bettine Moore, daughter of Charles Arthur Moore Jr. and Elizabeth Hyde, on 6 February 1943. William Taliaferro Close died on 15 January 2009 at Big Piney, Sublette Co., WY, at age 84.1

William was an American surgeon who played a major role in stemming a 1976 outbreak of the Ebola virus in Zaire, the first major outbreak of the viral hemorrhagic fever in Central Africa, and preventing its further spread. Close was born in Greenwich, Connecticut on June 7, 1924, minutes after his twin brother. Raised in France, he attended Summer Fields School, and Harrow School in England and then St. Paul's School in Concord, New Hampshire. Close enrolled in Harvard University in 1941, leaving the school two years later to marry Bettine Moore in a ceremony held at the home of her parents in Greenwich, and to become a pilot in the U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II. He served as the personal pilot and interpreter for General Joseph Harper.

Following his military service, he attended the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and trained in surgery at Roosevelt Hospital in Manhattan after receiving his medical degree. He traveled to Zaire in 1960, where he practiced medicine and ran the 1,500-bed Mama Yemo hospital in the capital city of Kinshasa, with the goal of getting health care into rural areas of the country. He served President Mobutu Sese Seko as his personal doctor and was chief physician of the nation's army.

In the mid-1970s, the Ebola virus broke out at a missionary hospital in rural Yambuku, near the Ebola River. The disease, which was characterized by severe sore throat, rash, abdominal pain and bleeding from multiple sites, had killed 11 of the 17 medical staff at the hospital, forcing it to close. Panic was in the air, with roads blocked, river traffic stopped and commercial air travel restricted. The army would not enter the area and President Mobutu was said to have left the county and fled to France, in the face of fears that the disease could spread to others as those infected with the disease tried to escape the center of the outbreak.

On his way back home to the United States for a home leave, Dr. Close returned to Kinshasa from Geneva, discussing the issue on the flight with two physicians from the Centers for Disease Control, Joel G. Breman and Peter Piot, who discovered the Ebola virus. Back in Zaire, Close obtained planes and pilots from the Ministry of Health to transport medical equipment to the affected area, using his personal connection to President Mobutu to obtain the access he needed. Close coordinated efforts in the area, ensuring that medical supplies were directed to where they were needed most. After providing protective equipment for hospital workers, sterilizing medical supplies and quarantining patients, the team was able to break the chain of transmission of the virus, with almost 90% of the 318 people infected left dead.

Blood samples that Close had collected in the 1970s were used to investigate the progress of the AIDS pandemic, showing that the rate of infection had been stable at 0.8% by comparing new samples to the older ones that had been collected in Zaire, one of the few sets of historical specimens available to perform this analysis. This showed that HIV infection rates could have been stable in rural Africa before it spread throughout the world.

Disillusioned with Mobutu's policies, Dr. Close left Zaire in 1977. He moved to Big Piney, Wyoming, where he became a country doctor, making his final house call a month before his death. During the 1995 Ebola outbreak he was a liaison between the CDC and the Zairian government.

Close died in his home in Big Piney due to a heart attack. He was survived by his wife, three daughters, two sons, nine grandchildren and a twin brother.
