For more than three-quarters of a century, the Fairbridge Society was involved in child migration to the former Dominions of the Empire. Founded in 1909, and inspired by the imperialist child-saving ideals of the South African-born Kingsley Fairbridge, the Society attracted royal patronage as well as much government and public support from the end of the First World War until the 1960s. Almost 6,000 children were sent overseas through various schemes under the auspices of the Society, until its demise as a migration agency in the 1980s. First comprehensive account of Fairbridge child migration.
