Ambrose Evans-Pritchard (born 7 December 1957) is the international business editor of the Daily Telegraph.

Early life[edit]

Evans-Pritchard was born in Oxford. His father was E. E. Evans-Pritchard, who was Professor of Social Anthropology at Oxford University from 1946 to 1970.


For thirty years, Evans-Pritchard has "covered world politics and economics" for the Telegraph, "based in Europe, the US, and Latin America".[1]


In the mid-1980s, was Washington correspondent for London's Spectator.

He was a correspondent for The Economist on Central America.

In 1991, he began working at the Daily Telegraph.[1] He served as Sunday Telegraph's Washington, D.C. bureau chief from the early 1990s until 1997.[1]

He was the Telegraph's Europe correspondent in Brussels from 1999 to 2004.[1] He has been at the Telegraph for over thirty years.[1]

The Secret Life of Bill Clinton[edit]

He is the author of a 1997 biography of Bill Clinton, entitled The Secret Life of Bill Clinton: The Unreported Stories which was published by conservative publishing firm Regnery Publishing.[2] In 1997 Salon called him "The Pied Piper of the Clinton Conspiracists" in a revue that said Evans-Pritchard wrote about the Oklahoma City bombing conspiracy theory as well as other conspiracy theories related to Clinton, including the death of Vince Foster.[3]

While working as the Telegraph Washington correspondent, his reports about President Bill Clinton, the 1993 death of Vincent Foster, and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing were considered to be controversial and often attracted the ire of the Clinton administration. When he left Washington, a White House aide was quoted in George saying, "That's another British invasion we're glad is over. The guy was nothing but a pain in the ass". His efforts in ferreting out the witness, Patrick Knowlton, whose last name had been spelled "Nolton" in the Park Police report on Foster's death, resulted eventually in a lawsuit by Knowlton against the FBI and the inclusion of Knowlton's lawyer's letter as an appendix to Kenneth Starr's report on Foster's death.[4] In his book, Evans-Pritchard responded vigorously to White House charges against him.
