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.

                                                  The UVM ROTC Band in front of the Waterman building, with director Dr. Joseph Lechnyr (d. 1959) in the front row, center. Because of World War II, presumably, women were needed to fill positions in the band left vacant by male musicians. The band became known from then on as the "Co-ed Band." This photo was published in the 1945 Ariel, the UVM student yearbook, on p. 83. Photo #1.
