"In 1870 [Griffis] accepted an offer to teach science in the provincial capital of Fukui in Echizen (now Fukui Prefective), but after less than a year he resigned to teach at one of the schools that was later to form part of Tokyo University. Among his students were future prime ministers, ambassadors, businessmen and scholars. Perhaps Griffis' greatest contribution was his voluminous writing on Japan, including 18 books, several hundred articles, and hundreds of public lectures."
Edward R Beauchomp, author of An American Teacher in Early Meiji Japan (1976)
writing in Kodansha Encyclopaedia of Japan.
