Eddie Rickenbacker was the most famous American aviator during World War I. He is mentioned in The Mansion by Strutterbuck, who calls him "Rick," implying an acquaintance with the "Ace" who shot down twenty-six enemy planes (84). But there is not the slightest chance that Strutterbuck is telling the truth.
