Little Known New Mexican: Conrad Hilton

Posted by on August 5, 2011 | One comment

Conrad Hilton December 25, 1887 – January 3, 1979

Yes, the man who brought “Hilton to the world” and lent to contributing this general atrocity into the gene pool of humanity, Conrad Hilton is in fact a New Mexican.

Per Wikipedia: (By way of AMC’s inclusion of Hilton as a character in their Emmy winning series Mad Men)

Hilton was born in San Antonio, New Mexico. His father, Augustus Halvorsen “Gus” Hilton, was an immigrant from Norway, and his devout Catholic mother, Mary Genevieve (née Laufersweiler), was an American of German descent. Hilton grew up with seven siblings: Felice A. Hilton, Eva C. Hilton, Carl H. Hilton, Julian Hilton, Rosemary J. Hilton, August H. Hilton, and Helen A. Hilton.

Hilton attended Goss military institute (New Mexico Military Institute), and St. Michael’s College (now the College of Santa Fe), and the New Mexico School of Mines (now New Mexico Tech). He was a member of the international fraternity Tau Kappa Epsilon. In his early twenties, Hilton was a Republican representative in the first New Mexico Legislature, when the state was newly formed. He served two years in the U.S. Army during World War I. While he was in the army, his father was killed in a car accident.[citation needed]

The most enduring influence to shape Hilton’s philanthropic philosophy beyond that of his parents was the Roman Catholic Church and his sisters. He credited his mother with guiding him to prayer and the church whenever he was troubled or dismayed — from a boyhood loss of a beloved pony to severe financial losses during the Great Depression. His mother continually reminded him that prayer was the best investment he would ever make.
