I am searching for additional information on the children who arrived at
The Hostel, Norval, Ontario, that was run by Alex Maclaren for the
United Church of Canada. According to the book I recently read, The
Little Immigrants, there was reference to a organization called the
Overseas League that sent boys to the The Hostel at Norval in the early
30's. My father arrived there in 1932, after having been in a foster
home from the ages of 6 - 14 yrs.

If anyone knows anything about the Overseas League and if they were
connected to any other organization sending children to Canada, I would
really appreciate it!
