In the not too distant past, there was a thread on Pripps,...
Just a comment here. Not sure where the mis-spelling started, and i
know I contributed to it a couple times in past articles, but John
(Jack) Prip, who either developed or popularized (not sure which)
this recipe, and for whom this flux is named, spells his name with
only one “P” on the end, not a double “P”. The flux is Prips flux, not
Pripps. If it were an arbitrary name, I wouldn’t care. but John
Prip’s contributions to the field as a longtime and influential
teacher, and as an artist, were and are very significant. He
deserves to have his name spelled right. I’ll leave it to someone
smarter than I to tell us whether it’s grammatically correct to still
capitalize the name as referring to the flux, rather than the man.
Of that I’m not sure (grin).
