He was the expedition physiologist on the 1953 British expedition that made the first ascent of Mount Everest, and a researcher into the effects of cold and altitude on human physiology.

- "Tall, gangly and with a shock of red hair, Griffith Pugh was the archetypal absentminded professor."  https://books.google.it/books…

- "His blazing red hair contrasted sharply with the ghostly pallor of his face. The man was Dr Griffith Pugh..."  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/…/The-pyjama-clad-hero-robbed-E…

- "Pugh's tall athletic figure and bright red hair matched his highly individual style that gathered a garland of legends in his lifetime."  http://lawfordherry.blogspot.com/…/dr-griffith-pugh-1909-19…

- "... startling figure with red hair, in his left hand an aluminum measure and in his right a whirling hygrometer..."  https://www.liebertpub.com/doi/abs/10.1089/ham.2006.1071…
