AP, NASSAU, Bahamas — John Templeton, an investor and mutual fund pioneer who established a foundation to encourage scientific and social research, has died. He was 95.

Templeton died Tuesday from pneumonia at Doctors Hospital in Nassau, Bahamas, said his spokesman Donald Lehr.
 
Templeton created the $1.4 million (U.S.) Templeton Prize — billed as the world's richest annual prize — to honour advancement in knowledge of spiritual matters. Winners have included Mother Teresa, Billy Graham and Soviet dissident Alexander Solzhenitsyn.
 
Templeton was born in Tennessee and later moved to Nassau and became a naturalized British citizen.
