William Little (January 8, 1809 – August 26, 1887) served as Mayor of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, from 1839 to 1840.
William Little was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1809. Early in his life he belonged to the civic/vigilance committee The Duquesne Greys.
Upon being elected mayor, Little began a fractious and confrontational relationship with city council. He declined to seek reelection in 1840, citing frustration with the politics of the city.
By the middle of the century the former mayor came back to his hometown of Pittsburgh to manage the Monongahela Navigation Company. He also served as treasurer of a local Pittsburgh bank.
