SUTTON, Milton Advertising Executive. Died at age 102. Cambridge, MA He was Creative Director of Burson-Marsteller Advertising Agency, New York. In that role he was assigned the Keep America Beautiful account, led by First Lady Ladybird Johnson. Her concern was the wave of litter despoiling our national landscape. His agency team came up with the iconic "Crying Indian" commercial. Other accounts included Dannon Yogurt, which became the leader in its field, propelled by the slogan on every cup, "No Artificial Anything." In World War II he was assigned to the Information and Education Division of the Pentagon Staff, where he was co-author of the publication "What the Soldier Thinks," distributed to officers of US Armed Forces worldwide. A habitual traveler, he is the author of an article in the Sunday New York Times called "Locked in a Library in Search of Bodoni." After he retired, he volunteered – consulting and writing for several organizations, principally the Tourette Syndrome Association, until the age of 98. In a widely publicized statement, the Tourette Syndrome Association expressed its "sincerest thanks for his dedication and wise counsel to our cause." In 2005, he moved from Roslyn, Long Island to Cadbury Commons (Cambridge, MA), a senior residence, where he was a long serving member of the library committee and a frequent contributor to the newsletter. He was the husband of the late Freema Sutton and is survived by his daughters Judy Storeygard of Winchester, MA and Jane Sutton of Lexington, MA, their husbands, four grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. Celebration of Life to be held at later date.
