    Biography George Raffalovic was born to Gregor Raffalovich and his wife Nadine in Cannes on December 10, 1880. He studied at the university of Nancy, and was naturalized a British subject in 1910. He was author of "The Deuce and All" (1910), a collection of twelve fantastic tales, "The History of a Soul" (1911), and other fiction and non-fiction, some in French. Some of Raffalovich's work was published by Aleister Crowley (1875–1947), whose magazine the "Equinox" (1909–13) he is supposed to have helped to finance. He was member of a family of rich Russian Jewish bankers, resident in Paris, other members of which also wrote.
    Following the outbreak of the First World War Raffalovich continued to publish articles on Ukraine, mainly in "The New Age", with which Paul Selver, the Slavist and translator of Taras Shevchenko's poetry, was closely involved. In 1915 he was suspected of sympathising with the Central Powers with which the UK was at war. Fearing the possibility of arrest, he ceased his Ukrainian activities in Britain and in November of that year emigrated to the USA where he attempted, without success, to organise the publication of a Ukrainian periodical. For a while his interest in Ukrainian affairs continued and resulted in a large collection of newspaper cuttings relating to Ukraine, mainly from the Boston press (Cuttings concerning Ukraine, November 1917 – January 1920, 8 volumes, Houghton Library, Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass.). Later he received a doctorate from the Ukrainian Free University in Prague and taught Slavonic and French history at a number of American universities. He died on 17 May 1958 in New Orleans, USA.
