Sanford Building Dedication Monday

Posted August 14, 1999 7:00 a.m. EDT

— The Federal Building in Raleigh will officially be renamed Monday.

A dedication ceremony for what will be known as the Terry Sanford Federal Building on New Bern Avenue is scheduled Monday morning.

In April, President Clinton signed a bill honoring one of North Carolina's most influential leaders.

Sanford died last April after a long bout with cancer.

In an illustrious career, he was a paratrooper, FBU agent, a state senator, governor of North Carolina, U.S. Senator from North Carolina, and president of Duke University.
