[<< wikiquote] John Park Finley
John Park Finley (April 11, 1854 – November 24, 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.
