US Congressman. Elected as a Democrat to represent New York's 8th District in the Sixty-third and two succeeding Congresses, he served from March 4, 1913 to December 31, 1917. Griffin was born in Brooklyn, New York. Following academic studies in Montreal and Jersey City, New Jersey, he graduated from the New York Law School, was admitted to the bar in 1902 and became a practicing attorney in his native city. He was Commissioner of Licenses for the Borough of Brooklyn (1903 to 1906) and head of the administration and guardianship departments of the Kings County Surrogate's Court (1906 to 1912). As a Delegate to the 1912 Democratic National Convention, Griffin secured the party's nomination for Congress and was elected in November of that year. During his service in the US House he was Chairman of the Military Affairs Committee. He resigned in the middle of his third term to become Sheriff of Kings County (1918 to 1919), after which he resumed private law practice in Brooklyn until his death at 46. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
