A collection of green

What began as Michael Greenway’s dream to own a St. Pat’s sweatshirt from every year they were produced ended this past summer when his father-in-law, Larry Stratman, Econ’78, found a 1964 sweatshirt — the only one missing from the collection — for sale in Sun City, Ariz. Greenway, NDD, had hoped to complete the collection by the 100th Best Ever, but some of the shirts were a challenge to locate.“There were only a total of 50–60 made from the first three years because they weren’t sold to the public,” Stratman says. “They were only made for members of the St. Pat’s Board.”

The complete collection, including the only known sweatshirt from 1963, the first year they were made, is on display at University Book and Supply in downtown Rolla.
