Dartmouth College Dance Card - 1908. Measures 2 3/4 by 3 3/4 inches, with original gray string still attached and a fabulous illustration of a Victorian Era woman. Some slight glue residue to back cover where the card was removed from a scrapbook, but still in very good condition. Dance cards originated in the 18th century and were used by women to record the names of the gentlemen she intended to dance with at a formal ball. They were used widely in the 19th century. This one is sponsored by the Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity. It lists the dances to be played starting with: 1. Grand March, 2. Waltz, 3. Two Step, 4. Waltz and 5. Schottische; 24 dances in total listed with an intermission for supper. Next to each dance is a place to write in your dance partner, listed under "Engagements". The dance card is unmarked. 8 pages in total. A rare dance card from a bygone era.
