This series consists of materials related to published and unpublished physics notes, articles, chapters and books by Professor Griffin.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Professor Griffin collaborated on research that produced a number of interrelated papers, many of which remain unpublished.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.
