Author. He was born in Kewaskum (Wisconsin). He associated as a young writer with Hemingway, Stein, and Fitzgerald in 1920s Paris and subsequently was a central figure in New York's artistic and gay communities. But he is fondly remembered for his books The Pilgrim Hawk, Apartment in Athens and The Grandmothers. Also he became a longtime member and was once president of the American Academy-Institute of Arts and Letters. He was cremated and his ashes buried with the ashes of his lover for 70 years, Monroe Wheeler, a curator for the Museum of Modern Art.
