Historical Society to host legends

By Molly Nolan

To honor the 60th anniversary of the Dallas Cowboys, and the receipt of the Tom & Alicia Landry Family Collection, the Dallas Historical Society (DHS) will host an evening celebrating the illustrious first coach of America’s team with former players from the Landry era.

Mike Doocy from Fox 4 will moderate the discussion with former players, including Cliff Harris and more, reminiscing of their time with Coach Landry (pictured). 

A reception, together with the premiere of the collection and a meet and greet with the players, will kick off the evening. This collection tells the story of the man behind the legend, featuring more than 60 mementos from Landry’s life, some of which have never been seen by the public. These relics — from Landry’s childhood to Cowboys coach and after — will have a permanent home with the Dallas Historical Society at the Hall of State in Fair Park. Tickets for the in-person discussion, exhibit and reception are limited. Other ticket options include virtual event with in-person exhibit viewing at a later date and virtual event only.
