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.

              Two teen campers stand with a banner identifying Marycrest Girl's Camp, Grand Isle complete with camp logo. A pickup truck is behind them decorated and transformed into a parade float. It represents a ship and carries an explorer, perhaps Samuel de Champlain who carries a flag with fleur de lis. He is accompanied by two "Native Americans" with canoe paddles. The date July 4,'60 appears on the side of the "ship."
