Addresses

This series consists of materials for and associated with addresses given by Professor Griffin, primarily from the beginning and end of Professor Griffin’s career. Consists of notes for talks, transparencies and printed slides. Many talks were given in more than one location over the course of a year; in this case, the location or locations indicated are the one recorded on the surviving slides or notes. Originally, transparencies were stored within the pages of magazines; where the magazine is relevant (i.e. related to the address in some way), the front cover the magazine is also included.

History of the Study of Liquid Helium and Superfluidity

In the latter part of his career, Professor Griffin pursued an interest in the history of research into liquid helium and superfluidity, particularly that of scientists at or connected to the University of Toronto. This series contains research materials, correspondence, notes and publications related to this historically-oriented interest; addresses given on historical topics can be found in Series 9 - Addresses. Individuals researched and written about by Professor Griffin include Jack Allen, Donald Austin Misener, Laszlo Tisza, John Cunningham McLennan and Oliver Penrose. For some of these individuals, correspondence with Professor Griffin inquiring about their work is included.

Manuscripts and Publications

This series consists of materials related to published and unpublished physics notes, articles, chapters and books by Professor Griffin. In his career, Professor Griffin authored and co-authored hundreds of articles, a number of book chapters and three books. Professor Griffin kept many of his articles in the form of reprints, and these have been included; some feature annotations or corrections that were added at a later unknown date, often in association with later research. Where the date of the annotations can be guessed at due to associated material, it is noted; otherwise, dates of annotations are unknown. Some annotations may be associated with later papers. Other materials, including associated correspondence, notes, referee reports & responses and publication documents, are included with the ensuing publication.

Towards the end of his life (2009-2011), Professor Griffin collaborated on research that produced a number of interrelated papers, many of which remain unpublished. Materials produced during this period have been divided according to their apparently closest-related publication (some of which are posthumous).

Documents associated with Professor Griffin’s publications on the history of physics can be found in Series 8 - History of the Study of Liquid Helium and Superfluidity.

Research and Professional Activities

This series comprises Professor Griffin’s research activities as a condensed matter physicist over the course of his career (1970-2011), and some associated material, such as documents and correspondence related to the supervision of graduate students. Records include: notes, articles by others that have been heavily annotated by Professor Griffin, correspondence with co-researchers (including students), and referee reports. Most of these materials have been retained in the groupings in which they were left by Professor Griffin. Where Professor Griffin had included his own reprints with his research or notes, these have been removed and filed in Series 7 - Manuscripts & Publications. Documents associated with Professor Griffin’s historical research can be found in Series 8 - History of the Study of Liquid Helium and Superfluidity.

Teaching

This series includes materials assembled by Professor Griffin over the course of his teaching career as a professor of physics at the University of Toronto, mostly at the Scarborough Campus, where Professor Griffin was based through most of his career. Materials include lecture notes, problem sets, course descriptions, exams and quizzes. As Professor Griffin reused materials for courses over his career, materials for a given class or on a single topic can span more than a decade.

Most materials retained relate to graduate-level courses and folders reflect the groupings in which his papers were left.

Conferences

This series consists of documents and photographs pertaining to conferences organised by Professor Griffin. Includes correspondence, advertising posters, funding requests, attendance requests and photographs of participants. One of these conferences, the History of Low Temperature Conference (2004), should be seen in the context of Professor Griffin’s historical research (Series 8 - History of the Study of Liquid Helium and Superfluidity). The rest are associated with his work as a physicist.

Employment

This series covers Griffin’s employment at the University of Toronto on the St George campus from 2000-2011. For the most part, it comprises correspondence and documents related either to Griffin’s own travel for professional engagements, or to the visits of other researchers.

Correspondence

This series includes a small quantity of correspondence between Griffin and others (largely colleagues and researchers) that is not easily associated with articles, research, supervision of students, or employment. Griffin transitioned to email in the mid-1990s, but continued to print out significant correspondence and keep it alongside relevant work.

The majority of Griffin’s correspondence has been filed in Series 6 - Research & Professional Activities, Series 7 - Manuscripts & Publications, and Series 8 - History of the Study of Liquid Helium and Superfluidity.

Personal and Education

This series consists of work from Professor Griffin’s time at Cornell, where he received his PhD in 1965. It includes notebooks from physics courses given by professors Vinay Ambegaokar and Peter Carruthers and a copy of Professor Griffin’s doctoral thesis, “The Electronic Thermal Conductivity and Other Properties of ‘Gapless’: Superconductors”.

Also includes a file about Griffin’s election to the Royal Society of Canada in 2003.

Canadian Journal of Chemistry - Editor

These files were created by Yates in his capacity as editor of the Canadian Journal of Chemistry. Arrangement is by original file number which reflects the order in which a manuscript was received for review in a given year. Additional file title information includes the primary author's name. Files usually include original and revised manuscripts, correspondence among the author(s), the editor (Yates) and the referees, referees' comments and recommendations.

Course Files

Includes selective exams, problems, research reports, lecture notes and reference to readings for chemistry courses taught by Yates at the University of Toronto and to a lesser extent Harvard University where he began his career as an academic.
