The Journal of the American Asiatic Association began in 1898, an American publication with the aim of promoting commerce and cultural exchange between the US and eastern Asia and Oceania. 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.

An editorial in the Journal explained: "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." Unsurprisingly, racist sentiments are prevalent throughout!
