The Corsair Club was an elite dining club, most probably founded by J. P. Morgan.

Official narrative

Wikipedia has nothing to say about the Corsair Club, although it was the subject of at least one report in the commercially-controlled media (a 1913 article in the New York Times).

Etymology

In 1881, J. P. Morgan bought the Corsair, 185-foot luxury yacht. In 1890 he commissioned the 241-foot Corsair II and in 1898 the 304-foot Corsair III.[1]

Membership

J. P. Morgan is the presumed founder member of the club. The 1913 NYT article mentions Chauncey Depew.

Exposure

The group became publicised to outsiders when J. Pierpont Morgan died, since in his will he left silver souvenirs, of the value $1,000 each, to "the members of the Corsair Club at the time of my death."[2]
