The entrepreneur from San Antonio - Conrad Hilton 1 is often associated with Texas, however, he was actually born and raised in San Antonio, New Mexico, an area near the Rio Grande, surrounded by vast high deserts and stark mountains. He was born on Christmas Day, 1887, second of nine children and, being the firstborn son, he was expected to quickly learn business skills from his father in hope that he could take over the family shop business when he grew up. Conrad discusses his childhood and early years of his career in much detail in his autobiography Be My Guest (Hilton, 1957) and states there that it was in his family home he learnt two values which would guide his whole life: work and faith.
