InfoPeter Zack Geer (August 24, 1928 - January 5, 1997) was a Democratic politician from Georgia.

Born in Colquitt (Miller County, Georgia), he was most notable for serving as 5th Lieutenant Governor of Georgia from 1963 to 1967 under fellow Democrat, Governor Carl Sanders.

After leaving office, Geer returned to the practice of law. He may be best known for having served as a special assistant district attorney in the prosecution of the notorious 1973 Alday murders in Seminole County, Georgia. Geer obtained convictions and death sentences for the three principal defendants, although the convictions were later overturned due to pre-trial publicity which was held to have undulty prejudiced the jury.

He died on cancer and was buried on the City Cemetery in his native Colquitt.
