Cameron Bruce Littlejohn was an associate justice and chief justice on the South Carolina Supreme Court.

C. Bruce Littlejohn was born July 22, 1913, in Pacolet, South Carolina, to Lady Sarah Warmoth and Cameron Littlejohn. He graduated from Wofford College in 1933 and the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1936. As a law student he was a member of the Euphradian Society. He served in the South Carolina House of Representatives from 1937 to 1943. He resigned from his post to enter the military during World War II, but was elected Speaker of the House of Representatives upon his return, serving from 1947 to 1949.

Justice Claude A. Taylor died on January 20, 1966, and was replaced as chief justice by Joseph Rodney Moss; Littlejohn announced his intention to run for the newly empty seat vacated by Moss. Following more than one year of indecisive balloting by the Statehouse, on January 25, 1967,[1] he was elected an associate justice of the South Carolina Supreme Court, filling the term of Joseph Rodney Moss. In 1984, he was elected chief justice, succeeding Chief Justice J. Woodrow Lewis.[2] After completing Justice Lewis's unexpired term, he was elected to a full term in 1984. He retired on 1985 upon reaching the mandatory retirement age of 72. Littlejohn died on April 21, 2007.[3] He is buried the Pacolet First Baptist Church.[4][5]
