GettDigital Gettysburg College Collections

Gettysburg College Artifacts and Memorabilia 

This digital collection showcases historic artifacts & memorabilia of Gettysburg (Pennsylvania) College. The Gettysburg College Artifact Collection is part of a wider group of digital collections that provide virtual access to materials of intellectual and cultural significance to the College community.

Gettysburg College Dance Card Collection

This digital collection features a selection of dance cards belonging to Gettysburg (Pennsylvania) College from 1882-1949. The dance cards found in this collection represent a wide range of events, from those sponsored by Gettysburg College itself to numerous Greek affiliated events.

Peaking in popularity between the late 19th and early 20th century, women used dance cards to record a list of the men she intended to dance with at any ball or formal. The dance cards represented in this collection not only vary in event sponsorship but also in physical appearance and contents. Covers range in materials from wood to foil, containing event menus to entire song lists.

“Shall We Dance?” does not represent the entirety of Gettysburg College’s Dance Card Collection and each dance card digitized may not include every page of the physical item. However, the digitized pages were each chosen for a specific reasons including: (1) Having a unique and aesthetically appealing cover; (2) Containing handwritten notes; or (3) Representing the only dance card for a specific event or Greek affiliation.
