Thomas Sedgwick (d. 1929) was a vigorous advocate of juvenile emigration. He led a party of fifty British boys to New Zealand in 1910 to carry out farm work, and took a further fifty boys to Ontario in 1912.
Press cuttings, letters, photographs, handbills, reports and other items taken from three albums relating to Sedgwick's trips of 1910 and 1912, and to his activities in trying to persuade private and public bodies and individuals to support juvenile emigration in the Empire. In the first box is a summary list and description of the preservation work carried out on the collection.
Presented by Thomas E. Sedgwick, 1928.
The collection was comprised originally of three albums, numbered 1, 2 and 4 (no. 3 was missing). The pages have been removed from the albums, placed in plastic sleeves, and stored in box-files.
