I don't know what the Griffiths script r is. In general, if you want to use a
different font for only some letters in a math environment you probably want
to use \DeclareMathAlphabet, e.g. if you want Zapf Chancery available:


where zpc is the name of the Zapf Chancery font family, m is the series
(medium), and 'it' is the shape (italic). Of course, substitue whatever
family, etc, as you see fit. Then, you could do 

\[ x = \myMathFont{A}. \]
