Arthur Wareham (24 April 1908–10 May 1988[1]) was a British newspaper editor.

Wareham attended Queen's College, Taunton, then entered journalism with the Western Morning News. In 1935 he moved to the Daily Mail, rising to become editor in 1955.[2] As editor, he reversed the drive of previous editor Guy Schofield to imitate the Daily Telegraph, instead taking the paper in a more populist direction.[3]

He was replaced as editor in 1959 and left the newspaper the following year to found a public relations company, Arthur Wareham Associates Ltd.[2]
