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.

1957 photo of a ceremony at Battery Park, Burlington, Vt., held perhaps on Veterans Day. The iron fence around the monument honoring Howard W. Plant is opened. A speaker (far right) addresses the crowd as VFW Ladies Auxiliary members hold American flags, which appear to be flapping in fairly stiff wind. The Brewer Bros. car dealership in the background now houses the Burlington Police Dept.

    Resource type:   black-and-white photographs

    Undated photo of a ceremony at Battery Park in Burlington, Vt., near the small monument placed there in memory of Howard W. Plant, the first Burlington casualty of World War I. Several band musicians (who happen to be dressed like Canadian "Mounties") stand at attention while other attendees look on. Two women, very likely members of the Ladies Auxiliary, hold American flags, perhaps as "Taps" is being played (see mcalB21F19i04, which complements this scene). The event may have taken place on Veterans Day.

      Undated photo of veterans' ceremony, perhaps on Veterans Day, at Battery Park, Burlington, Vt. The car dealership in the background now houses the Burlington Police Dept. The memorial stone and plaque--if it is the same one dedicated to Howard William Plant, first Burlington casualty of World War I--has since been moved to the southeast corner of the park, near the corner of Battery and Pearl Sts. A man playing trumpet (perhaps the same as in mcalB17F11i02), very likely "Taps," faces the memorial, which is enclosed by an iron fence, as other veterans and citizens salute or stand at attention.
