Russell Wiggins, 96, a former chief editor of The Washington Post who served as ambassador to the United Nations under President Lyndon B. Johnson, died Nov. 19 at his home in Brooklin, Maine.
Wiggins was a past president of the American Society of Newspaper Editors and the Gridiron Club, the exclusive Washington journalists organization best known for its annual dinner, at which the president and other leading officials are roasted.
