Peyton was born at Fort Riley, Kansas to a miliary family with military heritage,(Generals & Admirals). His father was a Brig. General and his early life was a series of moves from one Army post to another as General Marshall Magruder`s career required.

By 1937 Peyton had completed schooling and had several jobs involving aircraft design and manufacturing. Glenn L MARTIN hired Peyton as a draftsman in Baltimore, Maryland just as the war in Europe was heating up. Martin was producing bombers for England as well as the U.S. A new requirement came in from the Army Air Force for a new twin engine high performance bomber that would be faster then the persuit planes of the era. After many preliminary attempts at designs, 27 year old Peyton was given a chance to sketch his ideas. When Glenn Martin saw Peyton`s sketchs-----the B-26 Maurader was born!
