New York Times Obituary


Born in Milwaukee. His first short story "The Widows Walk" won a contest sponsored by Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine. Moved to Marin County, CA in the early fifties with his wife Marguerite, with whom he had two children. His novel The Body Snatchers was adapted for the big screen several times as were other novels. Robert Redford is apparently making his classic novel Time and Again into a film. Recently his short story "The Love Letter" was adapted as a CBS TV movie.
Finney died of pneumonia and emphysema at age 84.
