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.

                        Eight men and eight women in an office, which looks fairly typical but certainly not model (note oddly stacked furniture, crowded layout). Very few clues to the type of business other than the conservative dress code.

                              Creator:  McAllister, L. L. (Louis L.), 1877-1963

                              Date:  1946-1947

                              Resource type:   black-and-white photographs

                              Ca. 1946 photo of a promotion for "Wear a V.F.W. Buddy Poppy," very likely a fund raising activity for the VFW. Two women hold a poster describing the concept, while a veteran (wearing the cap) either receives or gives a poppy to a lady. The location may be the offices of the VFW at 69 College St., Burlington, Vt. (Howard Plant Post, #782). In the background are an American flag, the VFW post flag, a cross, and some military emblems.
