Like many young American couples at the middle of the twentieth century, the donors of this card set played bridge. As she stated: "When my husband was in medical school, and after we got married in 1956, we 'entertained' by having either 2 or 3 tables of bridge, and then dessert. Few could afford more than that." A fancy set of European-style cards, complete with attached note pad and pen, was never used by the couple. It was very likely a wedding present, and could not be used for American bridge games.
