United Press International

A federal office building was named Friday in honor of a black Mississippi dentist and civil rights activist, the first of the nation’s 7,200 federal buildings and courthouses to bear the name of a black.

The structure will be called the Dr. A. H. McCoy Federal Building after the former head of the Mississippi chapter of the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People.
