Overall browning of photo

Hi, I am restoring old photos. I have one that was scanned from a negative and another from a print (same person, same time, almost same location). The scan from the film came out great, however the print has an overall brown that I cannot seem to adjust for properly. It appears the browning is more in the darker areas than the lighter areas. Effectively I need a different white balance for the darks, mids and lights. I have lightroom CC and Photoshop CC and after a great deal of experimentation have not found an approach that has worked so far. Any ideas?

BTW, some prints I have there are no negatives for hence the question.

I have attached the two scans for reference.

-Steve

How about adjusting color manually using masks?

What you got right now is pretty good anyway, so you might not even need to do that.

Hi Skookbey, adjusting via luminosity masks is a thought. I will look into that on the weekend, it is a workflow I am not used to. I believe there are Actions out there that give me a variety of masks automatically which may help. I was hoping there was one of those thousand hidden features in PS where it would be simpler.
