Henry Kissinger, the former U.S. Secretary of State under the Nixon and Ford administrations, died Wednesday at his Connecticut home.

He received a Nobel Peace Prize for helping arrange the end of US military involvement in the Vietnam War and is credited with secret diplomacy that helped former President Richard Nixon open communist China to the US and the West, highlighted by Nixon’s visit to the country in 1972.
