    Elsie Janis (March 16, 1889 – February 26, 1956) was an American singer, songwriter, actress, and screenwriter. Entertaining the troops during World War I immortalized her as "the sweetheart of the AEF" (American Expeditionary Force).

    is an online version of an exhibition about her at Ohio State University.

    Judging from a quick skim of NYT hits, she was in the habit of sailing to London most summers and sometimes spent extended periods there.

    indicates that she was in London but intended to return before the Fall.
