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.

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

Date:  1944

Resource type:   photographs

Resource type:   black-and-white photographs

UVM ROTC Band (also known as the "Co-ed Band"), perhaps on the stage of the Southwick Ballroom at UVM. Director Dr. Joseph Lechnyr (d. 1959) is in the front row, center.

      The UVM ROTC Band (aka "Co-ed Band") in formation in front of the Waterman Building. Director Dr. Joseph Lechnyr (d. 1959) is in the front row, center. A similar photo is published in the 1946 Ariel, the UVM student yearbook, on p.111. The Ariel explains that this was the 2nd year the band was "supplemented by girl members," presumably because male musicians were involved in the war effort. All but 5 members of this band are women.

                                            Undated photo of a ceremony at Battery Park in Burlington, Vt., near the small monument placed there in memory of Howard W. Plant, the first Burlington casualty of World War I. Several band musicians (who happen to be dressed like Canadian "Mounties") stand at attention while other attendees look on. Two women, very likely members of the Ladies Auxiliary, hold American flags, perhaps as "Taps" is being played (see mcalB21F19i04, which complements this scene). The event may have taken place on Veterans Day.

                                                  April 14, 1917 flag raising at Mill Park, near the American Woolen Mills in Winooski, Vermont. 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.
