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.

                  Title:   Mt. St. Mary's Convent

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

                  Date:  1955; 1955

                  Prayer before the altar in the Sacred Heart Chapel at Mount St. Mary's. Nuns wearing black veils very likely have made their solemn vows required by their order, the Sisters of Mercy. Those with white are novices, who remain so for at least a year of study and discernment. The women wearing black lace are very likely postulants, a stage earlier than the novitiate. Dated 1955.
