Although the Pacific region, and China in particular, were the first arena for Starr's exploits, once that region became inaccessible due to the Pacific war he moved his focus to Latin America, where WW II had opened up opportunities due to the absence of European entrepreneurs who had dominated the market there until 1940.

Here we see C.V. Starr (right) waving goodbye from LaGuardia Field en route to Havana, Cuba.

With him (from left) are Nick Yard, Walter Weaver, K.K. Tse, George Moszkowsky, George F. Richardson, Sr., and Artemis Joukowsky, Sr.
