American philanthropist and humanitarian, founder of the International Famine Center at Tufts University and the Feinstein Center for a Hunger-Free America at the University of Rhode Island. His Good Deeds Program encourages school-aged youngsters to reach out to help the needy in their communities.
Feinstein concentrated in journalism and education in college and began his career as a teacher. After a private audience with the king of Thailand, he
established an English school there.
In 1974 with only $500 in savings and some experience in the business world, he started writing a financial advisory newspaper column and private newsletter, and his newsletter and several best-selling financial guides, a novel and several books for children brought in significant income. "The Four Treasures of Alan Shawn Feinstein," published by Prentice-Hall in 1984 summarizes his life and financial advice.
In 1996 he began dedicating all his time to alleviation of world hunger.
Feinstein has been married for over 40 years to Dr. Pratarnporn Feinstein, a psychiatrist and native of Bangkok, Thailand, and the couple has three children Ari, Ricky, and Leila Feinstein.
