Transcript Ten Years of Hilton Progress have created a ne-w trenci in hotel operations During 1956, Hilton Hotels Corporation celebrated the tenth anniversary of its founding. It observed the occasion by establishing new peaks for the year in every phase of its widespread operation. Revenues and earnings rose to the highest level in our corporate history.
