Henry Frederick Terry (1907-1980) ~ I Remember is a memoir that reports on the circumstances of Fred Terry’s immigration to Canada in the British “home children” program of the early twentieth century. The circumstances of his and his brothers’ lives as home children is recounted by Terry’s grand-daughter Ginger Mason whose research was aided by family documents and public archives. This publication joins Charlie Henry Workman (1897-1976) ~The Unspoken by Franci Louann in covering this poorly historicized practice of sending children caught in disadvantage to Canada to serve as child labourers for settler farmers. Both publications reflect on the inter-generational impacts of poverty and Canada’s history of trafficking children to benefit the settler state.
