Building the Dallas Cowboys Archives

October 7 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

When the Dallas Cowboys planned their move from Valley Ranch to their new headquarters at The Star in Frisco, they also arranged to preserve their history.   Join us as the first team archivist, Jonathan Thorn, shares his exciting work to organize and document all things Dallas Cowboys–past and present.  Don’t miss this inside look at the origins of the collection and the treasures it holds including uniforms and game balls, millions of photographs and documents, hundreds of miles of film, and yes, even one of Tom Landry’s hats.

Jonathan Thorn has served as the Dallas Cowboys archivist since 2014.  Formerly, he was the Global Corporate Archivist for the Campbell Soup Company in Camden, New Jersey, and has extensive experience preserving audio and video collections at Safe Sound Archive in Philadelphia and at the University of North Texas Music Library in Denton.
