Judge Bruce Littlejohn
Judge Bruce LittleJohn was born in
Pacolet in 1913 and grew up here. He is one of Pacolet's
most famous native sons. He had a long distinguished
legal career before retiring as the Chief Justice of the
South Carolina Supreme Court in 1985. At the age of 90,
in 2003, he wrote a book about his childhood in Pacolet.
It is titled Pacolets I Have Known. The
University of South Carolina Library is the holder of
Judge Littlejohn’s papers and copyrights. They have
kindly given us permission to make the book available on
the “Pacolet Memories” website.
A special thanks to Easter Steadings Fisher who brought
this book to my attention and also sent me the copy that
I scanned for this website.
The book has been marked with links that will take you
to related subjects already on the website. It is
astonishing how much life in Pacolet changed during
Judge Littlejohn’s lifetime. You can read this very
interesting book at PACOLETS
I HAVE KNOWN.
