Jubilee Video: Top 25

2:34

In 1954, Brownie Wise inaugurated the Tupperware Homecoming Jubilee. Tupperware dealers from across the country came to the company's Kissimmee, Florida, headquarters for classes and motivational events. Wise gave each year's gathering a theme, with high spectacle and outrageous competitions -- often for glamorous prizes. In this video, awardees wear turbans at the 1961 Tupperabia Jubilee.
