PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - John Rensenbrink has died at age 93 after a life in which he co-founded the Green Party of the United States.

An obituary in the Bangor Daily News stated that the political scientist and conversationalist died of an illness July 30th.

The party says Rensenbrink helped convene the first Green Party meeting in the United States in Maine in 1984.

He was born in Pease, Minnesota, and attended the University of Chicago.

He taught political philosophy and history at Bowdoin College and helped found the party out of frustration with Democrats and to foster peace and help the environment.
