Harold Healy Jr., the first U.S. lawyer elected president of the world’s oldest international bar federation, died Sunday.

The 85-year-old died at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York, said Wolcott Dunham, a partner at the Manhattan law firm of Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, where Healy was once a partner. Healy’s family declined to provide a cause of death, Dunham said.
