Video: State Fair of Texas scores with Tom Landry exhibit
Take a look at some of the Landry family's private collection.
DALLAS Fairgoers and football fans have something to cheer about when they visit The State Fair of Texas this year. The Dallas Historical Society, located in the Hall of State, has put together an exhibit based on legendary Dallas Cowboys coach Tom Landry.
The exhibit begins with Landry's days playing football for the University of Texas and follows his time in the military and through his career as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. The exhibit also focuses on the man off-the-field, who died in 2000.
With the permission of Landry's wife Alicia, the exhibit for the first time displays more than 80 pieces of Coach Landry's historic belongings. In this video, you will hear from one-time mayoral candidate, now chair of the Dallas Historical Society, Max Wells, as he talks about how the exhibit came together. You'll also see a sample of memorabilia that is on display.
