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.

                                              1959 photo of a ceremony at Battery Park, very likely at the veterans memorial dedicated to Howard W. Plant. C. Douglas Cairns, Mayor of Burlington (perhaps former mayor by this date) is standing at a microphone, addressing the crowd. An elderly lady--perhaps a relative of Plant's-- stands apart from the crowd to view the granite memorial. A number of onlookers from the neighborhood, plus other veterans, have gathered for the occasion.
