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.

      Created in 1921 and restored in 2000, "this bronze statue of UVM's founder, Ira Allen, was executed by sculptor Sherry Fry, a member of the National Academy of Design... James B. Wilbur, a wealthy businessman from Manchester, Vermont, who wrote the 1928 biography of Ira Allen, gave the statue to the University. The statue displaced the Lafayette statue which was relocated to the north side of the University Green, thus severing the logical connection between the original placement of the statue of Lafayette and Old Mill."
