Who did the makers of the Baby Ruth candy bar claim the bar was named for?

Baby Ruth Cleveland is correct - nice one! (yeah, I always get those old chief execs mixed up, too, goody. :-)

I still think "claim the bar was named for" is more accurate than "named for"... there are a lot of folks who don't buy that story, and there are some solid arguments refuting it. This might be one where we'll never know for sure...
