December 29, 1958

James P. McCloskey was the editor of the Harley-Davidson Enthusiast Magazine for 22 years. His death was the result of pneumonia and other complications and he was survived by his wife and two daughters. McCloskey kept the Enthusiast publications running smoothly during his stint as editor. The Enthusiast Magazine was the longest running motorcycle publication for over 90 years. The magazine began publication in 1916 and was published until 2009 when the Motor Company combined The Enthusiast with another publication HOG Tales, which had been in print since 1983. The new publication is called HOG Magazine and is still in print for motorcyclist enthusiasts to enjoy.
