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:   War Bond Campaign

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

Date:  1944

Resource type:   photographs

Resource type:   black-and-white photographs

1944 Three women standing behind what appears to be a War Bonds sales counter (location unknown). Patriotic background has slogans like "Back the Attack!," "Keep 'em fighting," and "For baby's future, Buy War Bonds," a not so subtle appeal to the safety of children. A list of charitable organizations (mostly for women) competing in the purchase of bonds is posted in the upper left corner.

    Title:   War Bond Campaign

    Date:  1944

    Resource type:   photographs

    Resource type:   black-and-white photographs

    1944 photo of store (very likely Sears on Church St.; note wall advertising) customers and/or employees signing up to buy U.S. war bonds. Large poster of GI throwing a hand grenade says: "[Let The]m Have It. Buy Extra Bonds." Informal arrangement of "ordinary citizens" in an everyday setting conveys the idea that everyone can contribute to the war effort.

                                  April 14, 1917 flag raising at Mill Park, near the American Woolen Mills in Winooski, Vermont. A large crowd has gathered for the event. Shortly after the U.S. entered World War I (April 6, 1917), woolen mill employees collected $100 to purchase 3 American flags, which were raised in front of the Champlain Mill, Mill No. 3 (now the condominium apartments overlooking the river and bridge), and the mill office. (Photo 1 of five images that create a panoramic view when placed together.)

A large crowd has gathered to witness the raising of 3 American flags purchased by mill employees, as well as to hear patriotic speeches and military music performed by George D. Sherman's Military Band. This occurred shortly after the U.S. decision to enter World War I, which brought an immediate demand for woolen blankets. Among the well-dressed citizens are some dignitaries on the speakers' stand: Burlington Mayor J. Holmes Jackson, businessman Charles S. Lord, and lawyers C.H. Darling and Col. J.H. Mimms.

                                        April 14, 1917 flag raising at the American Woolen Mills in Winooski, Vermont. A large crowd is gathered for the event. On the left side is the speakers' stand. Several speakers addressed the crowd that day, no doubt praising the patriotism of the mill workers who raised money to purchase 3 American flags, but also trying to create enthusiasm for the war effort (the U.S. entered World War I on April 6, 1917). The 3 flags (very likely not those seen at the speakers' platform) were raised in front of the Champlain Mill, Mill No. 3, and the mill's main office. In the distance one can see the Winooski bridge, and the street corner is West Canal and Follett. (Photo 4 of five images that create a panoramic view when placed together.)

                                          April 14, 1917, 8 days after Congress decides to enter World War I. A crowd gathers in Mill Park for the raising of 3 flags purchased by employees of the American Woolen Mills on West Canal Street in Winooski. One was raised in front of Mill No. 3, which later housed Forest Hills Factory Outlet, and also the Champlain Mill and the mill office. Horse drawn wagons can be seen as well as police or military personnel on horseback (the National Guard Company G was present that day, according to the Burl. Free Press, April 16, 1917). This photo (no. 5 of five), which shows McAllister's inscription, is the right end of a panorama and creates a panoramic view when placed together.

This could have occurred on July 4th or perhaps on Labor Day, when the mill sponsored a "Field Day" for mill workers and their families. The street seen here is very likely Follett St., with the Congregational Church at the top of the hill (upper left). (Photo 1 of five images that create a panoramic view when placed together.)

                                                1922 flag raising at the American Woolen Mills (AWM) in Winooski, Vermont, perhaps on the Fourth of July or on Labor Day, when AWM sponsored a Field Day for employees and their families. It appears to be summertime and a large crowd is gathered for the event, including dignitaries standing on a platform stage. Photo 3 of five images that create a panoramic view when placed together.

                                                  1922 flag raising at the American Woolen Mills (AWM) in Winooski, Vermont, perhaps on the Fourth of July or on Labor Day, when AWM sponsored a Field Day for employees and their families. It appears to be summertime and a large crowd is gathered in Mill Park for the event. A corner of the speakers' stage is seen on the left. The street on the uphill side of the park is very likely West Center St., and Follett St. is off to the right. Photo 4 of five images that create a panoramic view when placed together.
