The Journal of the American Asiatic Association began in 1898, it was an American publication promoting commerce and cultural exchange between the US and eastern Asia and Oceania. An editorial in the Journal explains: "The ignorance of our people in regard to the countries of the Far East is unquestionably a serious obstacle to the legitimate extension of American influence."

In 1917 Willard Straight, who had been involved in promoting American trade and investment in Korea and China since the turn of the century, and his wife, Dorothy Payne Whitney Straight, bought the magazine and renamed it Asia.
