The Book Collection Contest was instituted in 2003 continuing the tradition of the Arthur H. and Mary Marden Dean Book Collection Contest that was helf from 1966 to 1987. It provides Cornell students with the opportunity of displaying their aptitude in assembling and organizing book collections and articulate their interest in books and reading. In 2006 the contest expanded to include a separate category for graduate students.

The core of the collection was assembled by Oscar Tschirky (1866-1943), known throughout the world as Oscar of the Waldorf. As maitre d'hotel of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, from 1893 to 1943, he began a lifelong hobby of collecting menus, some of which were for functions he himself arranged, but most of which were of historical, gastronomic, or artistic importance. Upon his death, his menu collection, papers, and personal memorabilia were donated to Cornell University. The Hotel School Library has continued to add to the collection.

The collection, which includes bookplates and correspondence relating to them, was compiled after the exhibition.
