The CLEO II detector is used to search for the production of χc2 states in two-photon interactions. We use the signature χc2→γJ/ ψ→γl+l- with l=e,μ. Using 1.49 fb-1 of data taken with beam energies near 5.29 GeV, the two-photon width of the χc2 is determined to be Γ(χc2→γγ)=1.08±0.30(stat)±0.26(syst) keV, in agreement with predictions from perturbative QCD.
