About the Author:

Brother James Mangan, a distant relative of James Clarence Mangan, was born on July 26, 1907 at Admaston, Ontario. His elementary schooling was at a "little red schoolhouse" near the village of Eganville and Douglas. He attended high school at De La Salle College, Aurora, Ontario.

There, deciding to become a De La Salle Brother, he spent a year of spiritual training, a year called a novitiate. This was followed by two years of scholasticate, years of study. James had the choice of spending the second year with a French-speaking group in a college in Montreal. Here he became bilingual.
