The C.V. Starr Chair in Asia Studies

The C.V. Starr Chair in Asia Studies was created in 1985 through a grant from the Starr Foundation, which was established by Cornelius Vander Starr, founder of what is now American International Group (AIG). The assistance of CFR members affiliated with the Starr Foundation, especially Maurice R. Greenberg, also played a notable role in the establishment of this chair.

The Starr Foundation

The Starr Foundation was established in 1955 by Cornelius V. Starr, who moved to China after World War I and founded the Asia Life and American Asiatic Life Insurance Companies (later AIG). The Starr Foundation supports education and especially student aid, international organizations, medicine and health care, the arts and humanities, civic and public affairs, and social services.
