Harold John Finlay (22 March 1901 – 7 April 1951) was a New Zealander palaeontologist and conchologist. He was born in Comilla, India (now Bangladesh), on 22 March 1901.

His main research interest was marine and non-marine malacofauna of New Zealand, both recent and fossil. He also specialised on fossil Foraminifera.

He was the recipient of the Hector Memorial Medal in 1941.
