Raised in Kansas, Will Frye and his brother Frank were the founders of the Parsons Palladium newspaper, the first issue of which appeared on February 24, 1883. From February to October, 1886, his father-in-law, George S. King, had charge of the editorial department; followed by Will taking over the editorial work for some time. On June 1, 1889 Frank Frye purchased the interest of his brother in the establishment and became sole editor and proprietor. During this time, Will was also the Parsons, Labette County, Kansas city clerk from May 1885 to April 1887.

They retired to the Florida sunshine in the 1930's, where Will quietly passed at the age of 73.
