Pete Ross

Superboy and Pete Ross
Scene from a 1961 camping trip
A wealthy geologist who, as a youngster in Smallville, was a close friend of the teen-aged Superman.  Late one night, while on an overnight camping trip with Clark Kent and other Smallville youngsters, young Pete Ross, lying awake in his tent long after the other campers had fallen asleep, chanced to see his friend Clark Kent changing into Superboy (i.e., the teen-aged Superman) and thus became, completely by accident, privy to the secret of Superman's dual identity.

Then and there, Ross vowed to keep his knowledge secret, even from Superman, and never reveal it to anyone else.  On occasion, without Kent's knowledge, Ross even masqueraded as the young Clark Kent to help him preserve his secret identity.

To this day, Superman remains completely unaware that Pete Ross shares his closely guarded secret.
