Howard S. Fisk - Star Automotive Editor - December 20, 1961
As a young man, when hired by the Evening Star, Mr. Fisk was an avid bicyclist. During the years that followed he participated in numerous organized cycling events including century (100-mile) races. He was active in the District of Columbia Division of the League of American Wheelmen, an organization devoted to cycling, and he helped to establish routes for cycling races and trips. This interest in a mode of transportation that was all the rage in the 1890s and 1900s led Mr. Fisk's employer to name him its first Automobile Editor in 1907.
