Former US Secretary of State George P. Shultz died Saturday at age 100, according to the Hoover Institution at Stanford University where he served for over 30 years.

Shultz held four different federal Cabinet-level positions throughout his long career, one of only two Americans to do so.

Shultz is best known for serving as secretary of state under President Ronald Reagan, and played a key role in diplomatic relations during the Cold War. He also served as secretary of the Department of Treasury, secretary of the Department of Labor and director of the Office of Management and Budget during President Richard Nixon's administration.

He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1989.
