Kingman, Sir John (Frank Charles)

(1939 --)

British academic. He studied at Cambridge, where he became a fellow of Pembroke College, and taught mathematics. He was professor at the University of Sussex (1966--9) and at Oxford (1969--85), before becoming Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bristol in 1985. His books include The Algebra of Queues (1966) and Mathematics of Genetic Diversity (1980), but his name became more generally known as chairman of the Committee of Inquiry into the Teaching of the English Language (1987--8), which produced the Kingman Report, a major influence on changing practices in English language teaching in British schools in the 1990s. He was knighted in 1985.
