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.

                                                  View of the stage and musical group assembled there in the Burlington Memorial Auditorium in Burlington, Vermont. The huge banner across the front of the state reads Happy Birthday. To the right is a replica of a huge birthday cake with the letter R above it. Many American flags hang from the rafters and along the sides of the room. Event celebrating the birthday of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
