Nan Berry Davenport of Wetmore, Colo., Berry's daughter, says he died of complications from Parkinson's disease on July 1 at a retirement home outside Philadelphia.
Berry was superintendent of West Point when the female cadets were admitted to the academy in 1976. Earlier that year, a major cheating scandal roiled West Point, with 152 cadets eventually expelled for violating the academy's code of honor.
Berry was born in 1926 in Hattiesburg, Miss. A 1948 West Point graduate, he suffered combat wounds in Korea and Vietnam and was awarded a total of four Silver Stars.
