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.

                                    Photo collage with heads of men on owl bodies. The owls sit on branches of a tree. This may be a fanciful depiction of the fraternity of Lambda Iota at the University of Vermont, which claimed the owl as its mascot. The photo may date from 1935, but the collage itself could be older, if one considers hair styles and certain facial hair arrangements.
