Abstract

The T.S. newspaper began rescuing poor children from the city's hottest and smokiest neighborhoods in 1901. The F.A.F. assumed that proximity to nature modified both health and behavior. Evoking transcendentalism, the Star sent children to the countryside near Toronto, assured of producing tangible health benefits. It also expected "nature" to convert the antibourgeois immorality of poor children into something more tolerable
