Alan Louis Charles Bullock, a Fellow of the British Academy, was born at Trowbridge, Wiltshire, on December 13, 1914. He was the only child of Edith Brand and Frank Allen Bullock. The future biographer of Adolf Hitler arrived in Oxford in 1933, the year when the latter was appointed Chancellor of Germany. Europe made an impact on Bullock and on his peers. But his choice of research subject, when he began work on a doctorate in November 1938, after the award of a Bryce Studentship, and a Harmsworth Senior Scholarship at Merton College in the same year, was ‘Anglo-French diplomatic relations 1588–1603’. From the official opening of St Catherine's College, Bullock played an active role as Master until his retirement in 1980. In an interview in 1985, he said that he loved the University of Oxford but had always felt an outsider in it. Bullock wrote a book each on Hitler and two other important political figures in history: Josef Stalin and Ernest Bevin.
