In 2007, CNN reported that Barron Hilton will pass on the $1.2 billion windfall from the sale of Hilton Hotels Corp. -- - not to his famous progeny, but to his family's philanthropic foundation. His family said he committed 97% of his wealth to the foundation's humanitarian work.

He was born in Dallas on October 23, 1927. He moved with his father, Conrad N. Hilton, to Los Angeles in 1937 and started off his hospitality career as a teen by parking cars for hotel guests.

他于1927年10月23日出生于达拉斯,1937年随父亲康拉德·N·希尔顿搬到洛杉矶。十多岁时就为酒店客人停车,开始了他的酒店生涯。
