In New York City he joined a gay social circle which included fellow writer and close friend Donald Windham (1920-2010) and his then partner Fred Melton; he met and fell in love with Frank Merlo (1922-1963), an occasional actor of Sicilian heritage who had served in the U.S. Navy in World War II. This one enduring romantic relationship of Williams' life lasted 14 years; their years together, in an apartment in Manhattan and a modest house in Key West, Florida, were Williams' happiest and most productive)
