The purpose of this paper is to provide greater insights of A. C. Littleton as a person through anecdotes collected from selected interviews. In general, an interview is a conversation that has a structure and a purpose and therefore becomes a careful questioning and listening strategy with the objective of obtaining thoroughly tested knowledge. Thus, in interviewing various individuals who had in some capacity known Littleton, a picture of Littleton that was as real as possible was created. The interviews used in this paper are from individuals who were former students or colleagues at the University of Illinois, as well as from his son, Robert Scott Littleton, and his daughter, Barbara Littleton Combs.
