  3. Auberon Waugh Biography

    Auberon Alexander Waugh (/ˈɔːbərən ˈwɔː/; 17 November 1939 – 16 January 2001) was an English journalist, and eldest son of Evelyn Waugh. He was widely known by his nickname 'Bron'.After a traditional classical education at Downside School, he was commissioned in the army during National Service, where he was badly injured in a shooting accident. He went on to study for a year at Oxford.At twenty, he launched his Fleet Street career at the Telegraph Group, though he also wrote for many other media, including Private Eye, presenting a profile that was half Tory grandee and half cheeky rebel. He is remembered for his joke-campaign to stand for Parliament as candidate for the Dog Lovers' Party, reminding voters that the sitting MP Jeremy Thorpe had been accused of commissioning an attempted murder, which had resulted in the shooting of a dog.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.He and his wife Lady Teresa had four children, and they lived at their manor house, in Combe Florey in Somerset.
