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.

                                                  Members of the Burlington Vermont Supreme Cootiette Club of the United States No. 113 sit for a formal portrait. They sit on a stage with the club's banner to the left and the American flag to the right. A large Welcome sign hangs behind the women. Many wear the club vests and hats. The club is a voluntary, non-profit auxiliary women's club formed to offer support to veterans and families as part of the VFW. Clubs nationwide formed as early as 1930 with national headquarters in Sacramento, California. Women had to be at least 18 years of age. Photo 3. A 1940s date is partially visible on the banner along with Lincoln Club No. 113, Burlington, Vermont. Undated.
