Cody Pfanstiehl - 90; Enthusiastic Spokesman of D.C. Transit Authority - February 1, 2007

He became publicity manager of WTOP radio, then public relations manager of the old Washington Evening Star newspaper. He led publicity for the Community Chest charity before it became the United Way.
In 1961, when President John F. Kennedy created the National Capital Transportation Agency, Mr. Pfanstiehl was appointed community service director. The agency soon became the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority. Mr. Pfanstiehl retired in 1982, a year after the Downtown Jaycees named him one of its Washingtonians of the Year.
