Peter Studd came from a noted cricketing family and captained Harrow in 1934, scoring a hundred against Eton at Lord's. He subsequently went to Cambridge and won three Blues, leading the side in 1939 (his three great-uncles had all captained the Light Blues in the 1880s). The war ended his serious cricket, and he went on to become Lord Mayor of London in 1970-71.
Knighted in 1969, awarded GBE in 1971. Appointed KCVO in 1979 in recognition of his work for the Price's Trust
