Sarraut was born on 28 July 1872 in Bordeaux, Gironde, France.

He was Governor-General of French Indochina, from 1912 to 1914 and from 1917 to 1919. On 18 January 1920 he replaced Henry Simon as Minister of the Colonies.

On 10 July 1940, Sarraut voted in favour of granting the Cabinet presided over by Marshal Philippe Pétain authority to draw up a new constitution, thereby effectively ending the French Third Republic and establishing Vichy France. Thereafter Sarraut retired from politics. He took control of the family newspaper, La Dépêche de Toulouse, after the editor, his brother Maurice Sarraut, was killed by the Milice in 1943.

Sarraut died in Paris on 26 November 1962.
