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 building now known as Mann Hall was once known as the administration building (built in 1939) of Trinity College. In 1972 it was renamed in honor of Mother Mary Emmanuel (Frances Mann), who steered the college through many challenging years of growth. It contained the library, classrooms, dining room, lab, and currently has a small auditorium. It is now owned by the University of Vermont. Off in the distance: a large residence owned by the Sisters of Mercy.
