WWI University of Vermont US Army Training Photo – Central Campus by Louis McAllister


US Army Training Detachment at UVM 1918

US Army Training Detachment at UVM 1918

My collection of Louis McAllister WWI Photos has grown to include three more shots taken during the WWI training period at UVM in 1918.  McAllister was known to have taken panoramic photos of each individual training company in front of Williams Hall.  I have shots of Company B and Company C.  The photo seen above appear to be all the companies posed together with a series of US Army trucks behind Old Mill and Williams Hall in September of 1918.  The panoramics were part of a series of shots I recently purchased from a seller in Rutland, Vermont.  The group can be attributed to a WWI veteran named Theodore Maher, a mechanic who served with both the 336th Tank Battalion as well as the 339th Tank Battalion during WWI.  A fantastic find!

  1. I have a similar photo of the 302nd battalion, company B at Devil’s Den, Gettysurg, PA. Te Captain was Dwight D. Eisenhower. How can I find a list of the members of this company?
