Wingate Harmon, 54, died in Delaware Hospital, Wilmington, yesterday from burns received last Thursday.

Mr. Harmon was burned at Delaware State Hospital where he was a patient. He sustained burns covering 90 per cent of his body when his clothing caught fire as he sat in the courtyard of the Biggs Building at the state hospital. A hospital spokesman said he had been smoking.

Dr. Ali Z. Hameli, state medical examiner, attributed death to bronchial pneumonia and complications resulting from the burns.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
