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.

              A group of older women and two men, several dressed in Salvation Army uniforms gather around a table with a cake. One woman holds the tip of the American flag. Two crepe paper cat figures adorn the wall behind the group. This photo dates very likely from 1951 or later. (The two couples in uniform closest to the cake may be about to exchange leadership roles. The City Directory lists a few different names of people "in charge" during the early 1950s.)
