Cody dies; was PSA's crying Indian

Published on .

Iron Eyes Cody, who gained ad fame in a PSA for the "Keep America Beautiful" campaign, died Jan. 4 of natural causes at his Los Angeles home. In the Advertising Council's famed "Indian in a canoe" spot that first ran in 1971, Mr. Cody shed a single tear for the desecration he saw against nature. Marsteller Inc. (later merged into Young & Rubicam) created the public service ad.
