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.

                                                  1944 photo of a store window display promoting war bonds ("Buy an Extra U.S. War Bond Now!") and heralding the 4th War Loan (or fund raising) campaign. The display also pays tribute to Poland ("a Nation Bathed in Blood") and the strength of the Polish people. One poster has "an open letter to the unconquerable (?) Poles."
