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.

          1951 / 1952 photo of Saint Joseph's Church sanctuary with worshipers. The church, the largest in Vermont, was finished in 1887, but the parish itself began in 1850. A centennial history of the parish was published in 1987 and has a detailed history of the building's design and construction. Here one sees the full panoply of religious artifacts and decoration known before the reforms of the Second Vatican Council, some of which can be seen at St. Joseph's today. These include a reproduction of DaVinci's "Last Supper," numerous statues of saints and angels, at least 3 American flags, perhaps a flag of Vatican City, flowers, plants, and special lighting. In addition, a man standing in the middle of the church appears to be playing a trumpet. The occasion of this particular mass is not known.

              1952 Saint Joseph's Church sanctuary with priest in pulpit (left). Structural items such as the pulpit and the supports holding various statues attached to the columns have been removed, owing to liturgical reforms and audio-technology. The church, the largest in Vermont, was finished in 1887, but the parish itself began in 1850. A centennial history of the parish was published in 1987 and has a detailed history of the building's design and construction. Here one sees the panoply of religious artifacts and decoration known before the Second Vatican Council, some of which can be seen at St. Joseph's today. These include a reproduction, high above the altar, of DaVinci's "Last Supper," numerous statues of saints and angels, at least 3 American flags, perhaps a flag of Vatican City, flowers, plants, and special lighting. Photo no. 6.

This particular mass may be the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (Dec. 8), since the parishioners seem dressed for cold weather and there is a large statue of Mary under a canopy, in addition to others in the sanctuary.

                  1951 / 1952 Saint Joseph's Church sanctuary with worshipers. Two boys look at the photographer as he takes a picture of the altar at St.Joseph's Church on the Old North End in Burlington, Vt. The altar is crowded with statues of saints and angels and decorated with candles, flowers, plants, and flags. High above the altar is a reproduction of DaVinci's "Last Supper," and a prominent statue of Mary under a canopy can be seen on the left. In keeping with the Tridentine rite of the Roman Catholic Church, the priest faces the altar (and not the parishioners, as in current practice) where the Latin texts are framed and set in place. Photo 4.
