Wallace Stegner, in an effort to promote good relations and literary exchanges between Asia and the United States, visited the Far East. With funding provided by the Rockefeller Foundation, Stegner and his wife visited India, Japan, the Philippines and Thailand between November 1950 and February 1951. After returning to Stanford, Stegner set up an informal literary agency devoted to placing Asian writings in U.S. publications. From 195 1-1954, he solicited manuscripts from Asian writers and translators and sent them to various magazines and publishers.
