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.

                            1949 students of St. Anthony School with Rev. Edmund Marion (right), pastor since 1940, and Rev. Arthur Hamel. The occasion must be the sacrament of Confirmation, since the students appear to be at that age. The church is on the left; the parish rectory, on the right; and the school is behind the church. The church cornerstone is dated 1902, and the rectory was built the same year.

                              1945 graduating students of St. Anthony parish school gather with Rev. Edmund Marion, pastor, for a class photo. After serving in many parishes, Fr. Marion came to St. Anthony's in 1940. The 10-year-old school soon had a bus, a hot lunch program, and, at the insistence of the Quebecois pastor, offered French for an hour a day starting with 3rd graders.

                                1949 blurry image of St. Anthony students assembled for a photograph with the pastor Rev. Edmund Marion and Rev. Arthur Hamel. The occasion is probably Confirmation. (Saddle shoes are obviously part of the school uniform!)

Family members can be seen in the background, gathered near the school. The school opened Oct. 8, 1931 and remained open for 40 years. Extra parking and a large lawn now occupy the site of the building, which was demolished in 1980.

Background building is possibly the school but may be another parish building. A parish hall was built in 1953 to celebrate the parish's 50th anniversary.

Most seem to be dressed for First Communion, although the older boys have dark blazers and navy style caps. The picture may have been taken shortly after Victory in Europe Day (May 8, 1945), which would explain the prominence of the American flag. The parish school seen in the background opened Oct. 8, 1931, closed in 1971, and was demolished in 1980. Photo #3.

                                                School children from different grades and presumably their teacher line up in front of Vergennes Grammar School. Until 1950, elementary grades were schooled on the lower floors of the high school (built 1871; demolished 1964).
