From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

John Willis Griffiths (October 6, 1809 – April 29, 1882) was an American naval architect, who designed the first true clipper ship. His first ship, the Rainbow was viewed with shock as a difference in design, until she made the round trip from New York to Canton in 180 days instead of the normal year.
