American meteorologist
John Park Finley

John Park Finley (1854–1943) was an American Army officer, pioneering meteorologist and tornado researcher.

  • A single experience of this awful convulsion of the elements suffices to fasten the memory of its occurrence upon the mind with such a dreadful force that no effort can efface the remembrance of it. The destructive violence of this storm exceeds in its power, fierceness, and grandeur all other phenomena of the atmosphere.
    • Tornadoes, 1887.
