According to Marilyn Somers, Director of the Alumni Association's Living History program, male students could apply through the dean of students' office to see that their wives received the mistress of patience degree.

"The ladies would fill the top one and the bottom one with their date, and their date would sometimes get them to fill [the rest of] their cards up with fraternity brothers or others they trusted to dance with them," says Marilyn Somers, head of living history at the Alumni Association. "It was a process that took them many days before the dance occurred."
The frequency of the dances slowed during World War II, but many of the old cards live on. Somers rescued these from a flea market a few years back, and they're now on display at the Tech history exhibit at the Alumni House.
