Avery Brundage (18871975) was an American amateur athlete, sports official, art collector, and philanthropist. Brudage competed in the 1912 Olympics and was the US national all-around athlete in 1914, 1916 and 1918. Rising to president of the Amateur Athletic Union, he subsequently served as the fifth president of the International Olympic Committee from 1952 to 1972. In addition to his role in sports, Brundage was a noted collector of Asian art. During his lifetime, and by bequest on his death, he gave much of his collection to the city of San Francisco, California. This formed the nucleus (and, as of 2003, still accounts for over half the contents) of the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, initially founded to house and display his donation (Brundage, Avery, Asian Art, Art Collecting, Art Collectors)
