DALLAS (AP) – The man credited with designing the famed blue star logo of the Dallas Cowboys has died.

The Cowboys say Jack Eskridge died Monday at a Valley Falls, Kan., hospital. The funeral for the 89-year-old former Cowboys equipment manager is scheduled for Saturday morning at Carson-Speaks Chapel in Independence, Mo.

According to the team website, Eskridge was one of coach Tom Landry’s first hires in 1959, the year before the Cowboys’ debut season. It was he who designed the white-bordered blue star used after the Cowboys began with a white star.

Eskridge remained with the Cowboys until 1973.
