The life of James William Condell Fegan is presented by W. Y. Fullerton. It tells the tale of a man who devoted his life to helping the poor.

Between 1869 and the early 1930s, over 100,000 children were sent to Canada from Great Britain during the child emigration movement. Sometimes referred to as waifs and strays, emigrant children and simply orphans, today these children are collectively known as British Home Children. A number of sending agencies were involved in bringing children to Canada, including Fegan Homes. Each year from 1884 to 1939, with a few exceptions, parties of boys from Fegan's emigrated to Canada. Generally the boys would be 14 years of age when they went, although on occasion they might be younger, particularly if they were accompanying an older brother.

The prospect of work, and of a good start in life, was much better in Canada than in England at the time. A 'Receiving Home' was established in 1886 in Toronto, from where the boys would be found a placement on a farm. Each boy's experience was different.
