Early Life

Andrew Graham was born in Perranporth, Cornwall, and attended Truro Cathedral School and then Charterhouse. He read PPE at St Edmund Hall, Oxford University.


On graduation, Andrew Graham joined the National Economic Development Office (1964) followed by the Department of Economic Affairs (1964-1966). From the DEA he moved to No.10 as economic assistant to Thomas Balogh (1966-1967), then Economic Advisor to the Harold Wilson cabinet. In 1967, Andrew Graham became economic adviser to the Prime Minister (1967-1969) and from 1969-1997 he was Fellow and Tutor in Economics at Balliol College, Oxford.

In 1974 Andrew Graham returned to the No 10 Policy Unit as Policy Advisor to the Prime Minister, Harold Wilson (1974-1976).[6] In 1988, he became chief economic advisor to the Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer and later Leader of the Labour Party, John Smith MP. He held this position until Smith’s death in 1994.

In 1997, he was appointed Acting Master of Balliol and subsequently elected as Master of Balliol (2001-2011).[7] He was an elected member of the Oxford University Council (2006-2011).

In 2001 he raised £15 million and founded the Oxford Internet Institute – the first multidisciplinary research centre at a major university examining the effects on society of the Internet.[8] In 2003, Oxford University awarded him an Honorary Doctor of Civil Law.[9] In 2010, he set up the Balliol Interdisciplinary Institute. During Andrew Graham’s tenure as Master, Balliol substantially improved its overall finances, extended its fundraising, and in 2008 combined its students obtaining the most first class degrees in finals, with the men's rowing team competing in the Head of the River Race[10] – a feat matched by the women's team in 2011.[11] He stood down as Master of Balliol on 1 October 2011.

He was Acting Warden of Rhodes House (2012-2013) and a Rhodes Foundation Trustee (2013-2016).[12] Other posts, include: member of the media advisory committee of the Institute for Public Policy Research (1994–97), Board Member Channel 4 Television (1998-2005), consultant to the BBC (1989-1992) writing extensively on the case for public service broadcasting,[13] Trustee of the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation (2003-2005), Director of the Scott Trust (2005-2016) and, from 2014, he has been consultant to Mammoth Screen for the BBC series, Poldark. At the Europaeum he has led a major restructuring, including increasing the number of full member universities from eleven in 2016 to seventeen in 2019, raising the regular income by more than 50 percent and launching a Europaeum Scholarship Programme.[14][15]
