This contribution summarizes Martin Bulmer’s role in spreading among sociologists an interest, and a facility, in the basic use of quantitative techniques, both by his teaching at the London School of Economics and in other institutions where he was employed, but also to the sociology profession in Britain more generally. It also discusses his crucial role in expanding the scope and influence of the journal, Ethnic and Racial Studies, moving it from a niche publication to being one of the major English-language journals in its field.
