Peter Manigault (January 13, 1927 - June 14, 2004) was a member of the Horace Walpole Society, elected in 1970 and honorary member in 1998.

Peter Manigault was born on 13 January 1927, in Charleston, South Carolina, the son of Edward Charleston Manigault and Mary Pinckney Hamilton. He graduated from Episcopal High School in Virginia and from Princeton University, both with high honors. He also studied business and finance at the University of Pennsylvania's graduate business school. Manigault was a decorated veteran, who served in the Naval Reserve as an enlisted man in the final days of World War II and as an officer in the Korean War. After attending the Naval Intelligence School at Anacostia Naval Station in Washington, D.C., his duties in 1952 and 1953 involved special operations and intelligence. He served primarily on the east coast of Korea and earned the Legion of Merit with a Combat V and the Order of Military Merit from the Republic of Korea. After his service in Korea, he continued Naval Reserve training as a commander.

Professionally, Manigault followed in the footsteps of his father, Edward Manigault, as president and publisher of Evening Post Publishing Co. His grandfather, Arthur M. Manigault, was a rice planter in Georgetown who entered the newspaper business more than 100 years ago. He bought the Evening Post in 1895, and the family acquired The News and Courier in 1926.

He died on 14 June 2004, in South Carolina, at the age of 77, and was buried in McClellanville, Charleston, South Carolina, United States.
