Former N.H. governor Hugh Gregg dies at 85

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Former Gov. Hugh Gregg, a member of the state's Republican upper crust and father of Sen. Judd Gregg, died Wednesday at 85.

Gregg, who served a single term from 1953 to 1955, died at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon after a brief illness.

Rising from alderman-at-large to mayor of his hometown of Nashua, Gregg became at age 34 New Hampshire's youngest governor.
