LOS ANGELES - William Windom, who won an Emmy Award for his turn in the 1969 TV comedy series "My World and Welcome to It" and went on to score guest appearances on several popular shows, has died.
Windom died Thursday of congestive heart failure at his home in Woodacre, north of San Francisco. He was 88.
Windom won acclaim in the short-lived NBC series for his role as John Monroe, a writer-cartoonist for a New York magazine who relied on his fantasy life to escape a middle-class Connecticut life. The series was based on the work of the humorist James Thurber.
