Lamar Hunt, 1932–2006, American business and sports executive, b. El Dorado, Ark. One of the Hunt brothers—sons of Texas oil magnate H. L. Hunt—Lamar Hunt had significant business interests in oil and real estate, and was involved in 1969–70 with his brothers William Herbert Hunt and Nelson Bunker Hunt in an attempt to corner the silver market that failed spectacularly. Hunt is best known, however, for his role as owner of football's Kansas City Chiefs and founder (1959) and president of the American Football League (1960–69). He negotiated the upstart AFL's merger into the National Football League, which greatly expanded the older league and gave the NFL its modern form and popularity. Hunt is also credited with naming the Super Bowl, the NFL's championship game. Active in other sports as well, Hunt helped found the North American Soccer League (1967–84) and Major League Soccer and World Championship Tennis (1971–89).

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
Modern Language Association
The Chicago Manual of Style

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
