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.

                                      April 14, 1917 flag raising at Mill Park, near the American Woolen Mills in Winooski, Vermont. A large crowd has gathered for the event. Shortly after the U.S. entered World War I (April 6, 1917), woolen mill employees collected $100 to purchase 3 American flags, which were raised in front of the Champlain Mill, Mill No. 3 (now the condominium apartments overlooking the river and bridge), and the mill office. (Photo 1 of five images that create a panoramic view when placed together.)

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.

                                            April 14, 1917 flag raising at the American Woolen Mills in Winooski, Vermont. A large crowd is gathered for the event. On the left side is the speakers' stand. Several speakers addressed the crowd that day, no doubt praising the patriotism of the mill workers who raised money to purchase 3 American flags, but also trying to create enthusiasm for the war effort (the U.S. entered World War I on April 6, 1917). The 3 flags (very likely not those seen at the speakers' platform) were raised in front of the Champlain Mill, Mill No. 3, and the mill's main office. In the distance one can see the Winooski bridge, and the street corner is West Canal and Follett. (Photo 4 of five images that create a panoramic view when placed together.)

This could have occurred on July 4th or perhaps on Labor Day, when the mill sponsored a "Field Day" for mill workers and their families.

                                                1922 flag raising at the American Woolen Mills (AWM) in Winooski, Vermont, perhaps on the Fourth of July or on Labor Day, when AWM sponsored a Field Day for employees and their families. It appears to be summertime and a large crowd is gathered for the event, including dignitaries standing on a platform stage. Photo 2 of five images that create a panoramic view when placed together.

                                                  1922 flag raising at the American Woolen Mills (AWM) in Winooski, Vermont, perhaps on the Fourth of July or on Labor Day, when AWM sponsored a Field Day for employees and their families. It appears to be summertime and a large crowd is gathered in Mill Park for the event. A corner of the speakers' stage is seen on the left. The street on the uphill side of the park is very likely West Center St., and Follett St. is off to the right. Photo 4 of five images that create a panoramic view when placed together.
