Former student-athlete and Director of Athletics Seaver Peters (’54), passed away surrounded by his family Sunday morning at his home in White River Junction, Vt., at the age of 87, Dartmouth College announced Monday.

Peters graduated from Dartmouth in 1954 and served as the Athletic Director from 1967-83.

During his 16-year run as AD, Peters was instrumental in getting Thompson Arena built in 1975, replacing Davis Rink.

Peters was also influential in spearheading the creation of the Friends of Dartmouth Hockey in 1976, a program that remains essential to the success of both the men’s and women’s teams.

He was enshrined in the Legends of New Hampshire Hockey Hall of Fame in 2010 as recognition for his nearly 60 impactful years in the Upper Valley.
