Fluffy Raffles “belonged to a popular genre of the time — the clever and handsome adventuress,” Jacksonville’s Florida Times-Union wrote on Feb. 7, 1998. “Prim and proper yet bold and impish; coquette and vamp, the smart and mischievous young ladies pervaded the film and press of the time.” Fluffy Raffles, who visited Jacksonville in January 1916, eluded police and others “for no apparent reason other than the sport.”

Ironically, Stolzenbach’s brother, William L. Stolzenbach, who operated a bakery in Canton, found himself accused of a lack of patriotism by a defense group for refusing to join in a bread exchange policy he questioned.
William Stolzenbach saw other motives for the accusations. In a letter to the group, quoted in the Aug. 21, 1917, edition of the Lima Daily News, he wrote: “Certain of the emissaries of your department who have been in Canton have charged me with bearing a German name. If t...
