Anthony "Tony" Peterson was an attorney who practiced in Collinsport in the late '60s. One of his clients was Julia Hoffman. He had a secretary, who was also his aunt, who worked for him one hour every day.

Tony grew up, without money, in Collinsport and had admired local beauty Carolyn Stoddard since childhood. When Carolyn visited his office in 1967, she didn't remember having met him before his earlier visit to Collinwood that day. He told her that he'd been a lifeguard on the beach the day she wore her first bikini and that he'd also been her caddy when she had first learned to play golf (357). Following a lawsuit, brought upon by Tim Newly, a disgruntled worker in the cannery, Tony became romantically involved with Carolyn.

However, his chances with Carolyn failed when he became the victim of Cassandra Collins. Tony admitted to Carolyn that he hated Cassandra and that she had him under her spell (577). Carolyn forgave him after that.


Peterson was young and charismatic, but could also be blunt.
