Auberon Alexander Waugh was an English journalist and novelist. He was widely known by his nickname 'Bron'. He went on to study for a year at Oxford. As a young man, Waugh wrote five novels that were quite well received, but gave up fiction, for fear of unfavourable comparisons with his father. Waugh began his journalistic career in 1960 as a cub reporter on Peterborough, the social/gossip column of The Daily Telegraph. In the long and prolific career that followed he wrote for The Spectator, New Statesman, British Medicine and various newspapers. From 1981 to 1990 he wrote a leader-page column for The Sunday Telegraph. His work as political columnist on The Spectator coincided with the war in Biafra, a mainly Catholic province that had tried to secede from Nigeria.
