The streak is over

Julie Schubert, serials cataloger for 30 years in the library's technical services department, closed an era March 31 when she completed 200 consecutive work days wearing different T-shirts. The streak began last May 11, and she even kept a log to make sure there were no repeats. Some shirts were gifts, some were promotional items from the movie theater her daughter works at, several were the vacation destinations of a family she house sits for, but she didn't buy any to extend the streak. (And no, there weren't any Hawkeye T-shirts in the mix.) Photo by Bob Elbert.
