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.

                      "Waterman Building." Designation is puzzling since the Waterman Building is not seen here. This is more likely behind a fraternity house close to campus. Sculpture is of 2 stereotyped figures: a "mammy" presenting a prize cake; and two "pickaninnies," a boy and girl. Sculptures such as these were ready by Winter Carnival weekend and judged for prizes.
