DALLAS (AP) - Fans of late Dallas Cowboys coach Tom Landry can get a closer look at his life by attending the State Fair of Texas.

The Dallas Historical Society is organizing and compiling some football artifacts provided by the coaching great's 80-year-old widow, Alicia Landry.

The exhibit called "Remembering Tom Landry: The Personal Collection" will run during the annual expo in Dallas, Sept. 24 through Oct. 17.

The items will be on display at the Hall of State, which also will feature the football history of north Texas as part of preparations for Cowboys Stadium in Arlington to host the Super Bowl on Feb. 6, 2011.

Landry died in 2000.
