TeePee

Why is the name of the Medicine Hat businessman who was responsible for bringing the TeePee to Medicine Hat not mentioned?

TeePee

So much to write, so little time. An excerpt from hammersonpeters.com says;

Sometime after the Games, the late Amerigo “Rick” Nella Filanti, a prominent Medicine Hat entrepreneur and philanthropist, privately purchased the teepee from the City of Calgary. Filanti hoped to donate the tallest teepee in the world to the City of Medicine Hat in order to give the prairie city some commercial allure.

According to local legend, Filanti, after purchasing the teepee, lacked the funds to transport the teepee from Calgary to its prospective destination and entreated the support of the City of Medicine Hat. The City, eager to assist the businessman with his endeavour, agreed to pay for the transportation on the condition that Filanti eventually pay back the debt.
