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.

                                        City of Burlington, Vermont - Municipal Airport Administration Building: - Photo dated Sept 12, 1944 This view shows the north wing and the main section of the Administration Building as seen from the north west angle. Notice the closeness of the metal hangar on the south side of the building leaving only a narrow passageway. The office on the north east corner of the wing where entrance door is shown is occupied by the U.S. Weather Bureau. The north west corner office where triple windows are shown on both north and west sides of the building is occupied as an instrument room for the C.A.A. operations. The office indicated by the double window at the rear entrance is occupied by the U.S. Immigration and the office directly to the east on the front of the building is occupied by the U.S. Customs. It is proposed to remove the metal hangar and reset it just south of and in line with the wooden hangar to make room for the construction of a south wing identical in size with the north wing to balance the architectural lines of the building and to provide new office space for the U.S. Immigration and Customs. The old offices in the north wing thus vacated would be redecorated and some alterations made to provide accommodations for the Northeast Airlines, Inc. who expect to resume service in October 1944.
