Edward Ingram (born in Calcutta, India, in 1940) is a prominent Anglo-Canadian historian of the British Empire, long-time former editor of the International History Review, and emeritus professor at Simon Fraser University. Having obtained his BA and MA degrees from Balliol College, Oxford, Ingram went on to receive his PhD in international history from the London School of Economics, completing his doctoral dissertation under the direction of Hilda Lee and Elie Kedourie. Most of Ingram's scholarly publishing has focused on the so-called Great Game, the imperial rivalry between the British and Russian Empires in Central Asia. In 1966 he joined the faculty of Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada. In 1978 he was made Professor of Imperial History at SFU and became editor of the International History Review, holding the former position until his retirement in 2003. Although Ingram finally retired as editor of the IHR in January 2010, he remains Professor of Imperial History Emeritus at SFU.[1] He presently resides in New Zealand.
