Leonard Arthur Peto... he moved to Canada in 1912... worked for the Canadian Car and Foundry Company... he was 95 years old when he passed away on 10 November 1985 in Solano County, CA, USA... in 1946, he tried to move the Montréal Maroons to Philadelphia... in 2000, one of 14 alternate builders shortlisted by The Soccer Hall of Fame (he became an honoured member as part of the Class of 2011)...

wrote Bill Cole in 1935, “Len Peto brings a wealth of experience to the position (of Canada Soccer President); above all, he has the good of soccer as one of his main ambitions. Peto has done plenty for the game in the past and now in his executive position he can be depended upon to make all his decisions and all his actions count just for the betterment of the sport”... wrote Al Parsley in 1961, “one group of oldtimers may immediately identify Leonard Arthur Peto with soccer, at which his teams won greater renown than later gridiron ventures, or the ice sport”...
