Collection Overview

Louis L. McAllister photographed people and places near Burlington, Vermont for 60 years. He was born in Columbus, Nebraska on October 16, 1876, the son of Julius S. McAllister (born 1841 in Lincoln, VT) and Rosette Gould (born in Vermont in 1851). Julius McAllister worked as a photographer and dentist in Washington D.C., Bristol, Vermont and Columbus, Nebraska. Around 1895, Julius, his third wife Amy, and their children left Nebraska for the Union Soldiers’ Colony in Fitzgerald, Georgia. By 1900, Julius and Amy were divorced, and Amy and her stepson Louis were working as photographers in Thomasville, Georgia.

        April 14, 1917 flag raising at Mill Park, near the American Woolen Mills in Winooski, Vermont. A large crowd has gathered to witness the raising of 3 American flags purchased by mill employees, as well as to hear patriotic speeches and military music performed by George D. Sherman's Military Band. This occurred shortly after the U.S. decision to enter World War I, which brought an immediate demand for woolen blankets. Among the well-dressed citizens are some dignitaries on the speakers' stand: Burlington Mayor J. Holmes Jackson, businessman Charles S. Lord, and lawyers C.H. Darling and Col. J.H. Mimms.

          April 14, 1917, 8 days after Congress decides to enter World War I. A crowd gathers in Mill Park for the raising of 3 flags purchased by employees of the American Woolen Mills on West Canal Street in Winooski. One was raised in front of Mill No. 3, which later housed Forest Hills Factory Outlet, and also the Champlain Mill and the mill office. Horse drawn wagons can be seen as well as police or military personnel on horseback (the National Guard Company G was present that day, according to the Burl. Free Press, April 16, 1917). This photo (no. 5 of five), which shows McAllister's inscription, is the right end of a panorama and creates a panoramic view when placed together.
