Findley Burns Jr. ’39

Published in May 12, 2004, issue

Findley died Oct. 14, 2003, in Southern Pines, N.C., where he hadlived since retiring.

Findley and his wife, Martha, whom he married in Vienna in 1953, had lived in many places around the world during his 32 years in the Foreign Service and six years with the UN. He attended Harvard from 1950-51 and was a student at the National War College in Washington from 1961-62. He was a member of the Institute for Strategic Studies in London. Some of his early assignments were in Madrid, Brussels, Warsaw, Martinique, and Vienna. But he told us that one of the highlights of later years was the Class of '39's 1972 visit to Quito, Ecuador, where he was then stationed as ambassador.

Findley is survived by Martha and his two sisters. We offer them our sincere sympathy.
