Warren, who retired from the court
five years ago, died at Georgetown Uni-
versity -lhospital. He had been hospital-
ized since July 2, suffering frum con-
gestive heart failure and coronary in-

ciety and politics. Among them was the
ruling that banned racial segt1egation t

A hospital official said Warren died at
8:10 p.m. EDT of cardiac arrest. His
wife and one of his daughters were with
him at the time.
Warren Burger, his successor as chief
justice, said Warren's half-century of C van

dynamic eras in our history, and his
contribiion was larg iindeed."
