After the death of Jim Morgan's widow, her niece inherited a scrapbook of Jim's photos and a number of his models and medals as well as some family photos.  Together they tell a very interesting story of a man of many interests and abilities, of his family and of life in the 20th century.  In particular they provide a window into the world of the "health and strength" movement of the inter-war years.  By courtesy of his niece we tell Jim's story here.  The material has been edited by Frank Sharman.  The captions to the photos which identify the people in them appear in Jim's scrapbook.  The rest of the captions have been added by Frank Sharman.
