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.

                                                  1952 photo of (very likely) an Armistice Day parade, on the way to the VFW memorial at Battery Park (see mcalB21F14i11). Leading the parade are Burlington Mayor J. Edward Moran (left), two other men in uniform, and a color guard carrying the American flag and the VFW Howard Plant Post No. 782 flag. 782 is named after Burlington's first casualty in World War I, Howard W. Plant.
