Harley-Davidson Museum today posted on its Facebook page a selection of photos it received as part of collection of images and memorabilia donated by a former Harley employee.

According to the Facebook post former H-D employee Bob Jameson donated “ two scrapbooks, numerous photographs, news clippings and other company related materials” for the museum’s collection. Jameson, following in his father’s footsteps, worked for The Motor Company, and in 1960 helped develop a motorcycle suited for use in the Vietnam war. Jameson’s father, Howard “Hap” Jameson was hired by H-D co-founder, Arthur Davidson, in 1911.

Visit the Harley-Davidson Museum Facebook page to see more of the images in this collection.
