A visitation has been scheduled for Gatewood Galbraith, the iconic Kentucky politician who died Wednesday.

Mr. Galbraith, 64, died at home in his sleep after developing pneumonia that was complicated by chronic emphysema.

The visitation, which will be limited to family and close friends, will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Crowne Plaza Hotel — The Campbell House. It will be held in the Colonial Ballroom at the South Broadway hotel.

Grant Bolt, general manager of Milward Funeral Directors, said arrangements for a public memorial service are pending.

Mr. Galbraith, a perennial candidate, died early Wednesday, just two months after running his fifth campaign for governor.
