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.

Words and phrases used: "Ravaged," [several European countries] "at peace," "No surrender," and "They can take only our bodies!"

                                          1945 photo of a store window display with portraits of war leaders, some of whom had appeared on the cover of Time magazine. Most prominent is a photo of FDR, whose portrait is placed between 2 war bonds. Below is a poster showing a battle-hardened GI saying "Next!" with an image of Japan and the Japanese flag at the bottom of the poster. Display was probably made after Victory in Europe Day (8 May 1945), thereby suggesting that Japan will be the site of the next American victory. The usual exhortation to "buy more bonds" is at the very bottom.

                                            1945 photo of a large store window with several panels devoted to the War Bond campaign. Date may be after May 8th, 1945 (Victory in Europe), since the four posters describe each country as being "at peace," and the "NEXT!" poster (see mcalB21F26i04), indicating Japan as the next theater to be conquered, is also on display. Total amounts raised during the 6th War Loan were announced in early Jan., 1945, so this image may have been taken a month or 2 before or after that date. Readers are encouraged to buy more bonds "for total victory and lasting peace."

                                              1945 photo of a rather cluttered window display promoting the 6th War Loan. Total amounts raised in the 6th War Loan were announced in early January, 1945, so much of the campaign coincided with the Christmas shopping season, which explains the "Peace on Earth" slogan and other decorations. The local or regional goal was to raise $2.4 million. Many slogans appear in this display, e.g. "On to Tokyo," "Let's finish the job!" "Let's go for the knock out blow," and "Your country is still at war. Are you?" intimating perhaps an element of complacency or overconfidence on the part of citizens. Name of store is unknown.

Posters display familiar wartime graphics, and one text reads "An open letter to the American people." Intent apparently is to exhort Americans to buy more bonds by showing that countries are fighting Germany's aggression and need further support.
