McAllister: A man on the move


Caliga would stay in Salem for a few more years before relocating to Provincetown, which he had discovered in the late 1890s. He would remarry and remain an active member of the community’s art scene until his death in 1934. He left behind, in his art, a number of reminders that he had once lived here, including portraits of Matthew Robson and Mrs. George “Aunt Scotty” Binney of Salem and Alfred Putnam of Danvers.


Salem historian Jim McAllister is a regular contributor to these pages.
