Sir Edwin Arnold (1832-1935) was a journalist and writer, who joined the Daily Telegraph staff in 1861. He became chief editor in 1873, a post he held until 1889. After graduating from Oxford University, he went to India in 1856 to run a school, before returning and joining The Telegraph, where he worked for more than 40 years. Despite his long career in newspapers, and being responsible for arranging the Stanley expedition with the New York Herald (one of The Telegraph’s great landmarks), he was better known to his contemporaries for his poetry, which showed deep interest in Indian, and later Japanese, culture.
