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.

                                            Hard to believe this eyesore once existed! This is located in the field between University Row and what would later be the "shoebox" dormitories--Chittenden-Buckham-Wills. Apparently, the postwar rise in enrollment called for pre-fab temporary housing. Dated 1947.

                                              View looking southwest of temporary housing on main campus. The gym (now Royall Tyler Theatre) lies beyond the housing units, with Old Mill, and Williams off to the right. The temporary structures were replaced by the "shoebox" dormitories--Chittenden-Buckham-Wills--which were considered "international" in style. Dated 1947.
