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.

                                                  1947 photo of the Mt. St. Mary's Academy Sodality in a classroom, here demonstrating some of their activities-- spiritual reading and making signs to promote the benefits of praying the rosary. Sodalities gave lay Catholics the opportunity to increase their personal devotion and serve others; hence, the sign: "Rosaries release souls from Purgatory. Say yours every day." Another one says: "Convert Russia through the Rosary." Photo #15.
