Alexander M. and June L. Maisin Prostate Research Fund

This fund was established in 1996 by the Alexander M. and June L. Maisin Trust to support research for prostate disease including cancer and benign prostatic disease and the treatment of the diseases.

Alexander Maisin was of Russian Jewish descent and grew up in Harbin, China, where his family had moved to escape discrimination and violence. He fled China before the beginning of WWII, moved to San Francisco as a new immigrant without any funds, and worked as a longshoreman, loading and unloading ships in the San Francisco harbor. He invested his savings into a house, then another building, eventually owning commercial and residential properties throughout San Francisco.

Maisin passed away in 1995.
