The collection contains six dance cards, five of which had belonged to alumnus, Richard Warrington '1935, and one belonging to Jean Reid Goldsborough '1933. Each card gives a brief explanation of the formal dance for which it was generated. The majority of the events were held at the Ben Franklin and Bellevue-Stratford hotels. Several of the cards have tassels and pencils for writing the names of dance partners. Two cards have the dance partners' names written in, but the remainder are blank.
