Businessman, Professional Football Team Owner. He and his brother inherited the fortune their father had built in real estate, construction, railroads and oil in the 1920s and 1030s. He established the Dallas Cowboys football team in 1959 for $600,000, and sold them in 1984 to H.R. "Bum" Bright for $80 million.
