Louis McAllister’s Historic Burlington Photos Now Online

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

Audio Slideshow: Louis McAllister

It has been said that the 25,000 photographs in Special Collections’ Louis McAllister collection “span the marvelous (circus sideshows with signs promising ‘Viking giants,’ ‘freaks,’ and ‘strange people’) to the mundane (serene shots of bank interiors and children’s dance recitals).”  This heavily-used collection of commercial photography is now available online.

Researchers will appreciate the collection’s “museum-level cataloging” created by library faculty and staff. Extremely detailed records for individual photographs will aid scholars, genealogists, and history buffs.

See the Louis L. McAllister Photographs for yourself at the UVM Libraries’ Center for Digital Initiatives. New materials are constantly being added.
