Samuel Littlejohn, Jr., from Jonesville, South Carolina, was Clemson Class of 1917, and majored in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. He served as President of his Junior and Senior Classes.

While a Cadet, Littlejohn held the ranks of Sergeant; Captain and Adjutant. He participated in the following: Vice-President, Athletic Association; Assistant Manager, Baseball (1916); Vice-President, Union County Club; Chairman, Senior Ring Committee; Secretary, Wade Hampton Literary Society; Sophomore Co-Operative Committee; Class Football, (1914-1916); Thalian Dancing Club; Chief Commencement Marshall (1916); Senior Dancing Club, in addition to his Presidencies of the Junior and Senior Classes.

From his Senior blurb in TAPS 1917, Volume 10: "In the fall of 1913 the drowsy city of Jonesville decided to dispose of some of some of its superfluous humanity, and so 'Umm Sammy' was packed off to the secluded spot of Oconee, known as Clemson. He soon became a favorite of the boys who took life as it came. 'Pap' displayed his military ability in his Junior year. Since then he has been a shining light in the Colonel's eyes. 'Sam' has displayed his ability in several ways: as an athlete, in class football, as a student, in 'shooting' the professors consistently, as a business man, in his able management of 'Taps,' '17, and as an 'all around good scout,' by his popularity among the boys, even among the 'Rats.' We predict for Samuel a most successful future." (Page 53.)
