William Windom (September 28, 1923 Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA – August 16, 2012 Woodacre, California, USA) was an American actor. He played a wide variety of roles in both film and television during a near 60 year career, but is perhaps best known for his roles in two sitcoms: as Glen Morley, a fictional congressman from Minnesota (a role based on Windom's own Republican great-grandfather and namesake) in The Farmer's Daughter (1963–1966), and his Emmy Award winning role as cartoonist John Monroe in the short-lived comedy My World and Welcome to It (1969–1970).

Feature films Windom has appeared in included the Academy Award-winning To Kill a Mockingbird (1962), The Detective (1968), and Escape from the Planet of the Apes (1971) to name a few.
