|Founded by the head of the US deep state over a century ago, the Corsair Club was a private dining clubs. It gathered 12 members gathered for off the record conversations, presumably about deep political intrigues. It is not known to have survived J. P. Morgan's death in 1913|
J. P. Morgan is the presumed founder member of the club. The 1913 NYT article mentions Chauncey Depew. The banker and railroad executive Charles D. Lanier was also a member. Other original members included George Bowdoin, Frank K. Sturgis, David Egleston and William Turnbull  and Elihu Root
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."
It is unknown whether the group continued after J. P. Morgan's death in 1913.
