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).[1]

Etymology

In 1881, J. P. Morgan bought the Corsair, a 185-foot luxury yacht. In 1890 he commissioned the 241-foot Corsair II, in 1898 the 304-foot Corsair III[2] and in 1930 the 343-foot Corsair IV.[3]

Membership

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 as member.[4]Other original members included George Bowdoin, Frank K. Sturgis,David Egleston, William Turnbull[5] [6] and Elihu Root[7]

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."[8]

Dates

It is unknown whether the group continued after J. P. Morgan's death in 1913.
