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.

Undated photo of a ceremony at Battery Park in Burlington, Vt., near the small monument placed there in memory of Howard W. Plant, the first Burlington casualty of World War I. Several band musicians (who happen to be dressed like Canadian "Mounties") stand at attention while other attendees look on. Two women, very likely members of the Ladies Auxiliary, hold American flags, perhaps as "Taps" is being played (see mcalB21F19i04, which complements this scene). The event may have taken place on Veterans Day.
