Arthur Mann (1876-1972) was a journalist. He edited the Evening Standard, where he started the 'Londoner's Diary', 1915-19, and the Yorkshire Post, 1919-39. In 1941 he arbitrated in the dispute between the Observer and J.L. Garvin, and served as a Trustee from 1951 until his resignation over the paper's criticism of the government's handling of the Suez crisis. Between 1941 and 1946 he was a member of the BBC's Board of Governors. Further details are given in the Dictionary of National Biography.
