The portrait bust of Conrad N. Hilton was commissioned by Mayo Foundation as an enduring expression of gratitude for a magnificent gift of the structure that bears his name.
In making his gift to the Mayo Foundation, Mr. Hilton stated, "I can think of no more worthwhile goal than for the rewards of a man's dreams and successes to culminate in a truly meaningful benefit to mankind."
The Mayo Clinic building that bears his name is a step towards the shared goal of Mr. Hilton and those of William J. Mayo and Charles H. Mayo.
