(Harrisburg) -- A family spokesman says William Scranton, a former Pennsylvania governor and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, has died at the age of 96. Mike DeVanney says Scranton died Sunday night of a cerebral hemorrhage at a retirement community in Montecito, Calif.
DeVanney notes that Scranton also had a home in Waverly, Pa., just outside the city named for the former governor's family. Scranton was Pennsylvania's 38th governor, serving one term -- the maximum at the time -- from 1963 to 1967.
