Who was Lord Stanley?

"Lord Stanley" is sometimes used as a nickname for the Stanley Cup. However, Lord Stanley was Frederick Arthur Stanley, Lord Stanley of Preston. He was appointed governor general of Canada in 1888 and served in that capacity until 1893. While in Canada his son became a hockey player and Lord Stanley grew fond of the game. He is best remembered for donating the Stanley Cup as a trophy for Canada's hockey champions and now is synonomous with the NHL champions.
