John T. Bambury (July 10, 1891 – November 4, 1960) was an American actor with dwarfism, best known for his role as one of the Munchkins in the 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz. He also had parts in nine other films between 1926 and 1951.

In 2007, all 124 Munchkin actors in Oz were honored with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. For Bambury this was a posthumous honor. Seven surviving Munchkin actors attended the ceremony, including Mickey Carroll, Ruth Duccini, Jerry Maren, Margaret Pellegrini, Meinhardt Raabe, Karl Slover and Clarence Swensen.[1]
