May 20, 1915


Lorenzo A. Atwood died at his home, 107 South Willard st., yesterday morning after a lingering heart trouble. Mr. Atwood was born July 16, 1841, in Chester, Vt., the son of Jeremiah and Eliza (Andrews) Atwood. He grew up on the home farm receiving his education at the Chester Academy. At the age of 20 he enlisted in Company G, 7th Vt. Vols., serving with that regiment until discharged at Washington in 1865. At the close of the war he started in photographic work and became a pupil of William Nottman, of Montreal, leaving there in 1873 to go with Warren of Boston, where he photographed many distinguished men, among them Longfellow, Lowell, and Emerson. In 1874 he came to Burlington where he opened a studio in the Bacon block on Church st. and continued there until 1908, when he retired from business. He married Julia Ann Hobart, of Fairfax. Mrs. Atwood and four children survive him. The children are Mrs. E.A. Warren, of this city, Charles H. Atwood, of Pittsfield, Mass., Mrs. G. C. Gould of Brattleboro, and James A. Atwood, of Dayton, Ohio. The funeral will be held Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock from the house 107 South Willard st. Burial will be in Lake View cemetery.
