Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt has died at the age of 74. He had prostate cancer. His family has asked that memorials be made to the Sallas Museum of Art and the Heart of a Champion Foundation, in lieu of flowers. When he failed to buy an NFL franchise for his hometown of Dallas in the 1950s, he gathered several other millionaires together to found the American Football League. The league played its first season in 1960. Six years later it merged with the NFL, with Hunt as the principle negotiators. His Chiefs, which began as the Dalas Texans and moved to Kansas City in 1963, played in the first Super Bowl, although it was not called that at the time, and won Super Bowl IV. Hunt is credited with creating the name “Super Bowl.” He was a key figure in creating the Truman Sports Complex and helped convince voters last year to approve a special sales tax to renovate Arrowhead and Kauffman Stadiums there. But his influence in Kansas City went beyond football. His Hunt Midwest Enterprises created Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun theme parks in kansas City. The company was also important in developing the Kansas City International Foreign Trade Zones. He worked for years to establish soccer as an American sport and worked to establish a pro tennis circuit. He was the first AFL figure elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. In 1984, the NFL named the trophy given to the champion of the American Football Conference the “Lamar Hunt Trophy.”
