Bruce Alexander Russell (August 4, 1903 – December 18, 1963) was an American editorial cartoonist.

After studying at the Southern branch of the University of California, where he worked for the Cub Californian,[1] he was hired for the Los Angeles Times as a sports cartoonist in 1927. He also drew a nationally syndicated cartoon, Rollo Rollingstone, during the early 1930s. In 1934 he became the lead cartoonist for the Times, a position he held until his death of a heart attack.[2]

Russell won the annual Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning in 1946 citing a cartoon entitled "Time to Bridge that Gulch".[3]

His papers are held at University of California, Los Angeles.[4]
