Biography

William Healy was born near Windham, Iowa, on September 10, 1881, the son of Jeremiah and Mary Ann (Bradley) Healy. He attended the University of Iowa for six years, receiving his B.A. in 1906 and an LL.B. in 1908. He then moved to Idaho where he was admitted to the bar and became a partner in the Boise law firm of Smead, Elliott & Healy. He practiced law in Silver City, serving as prosecuting attorney of Owyhee County from 1911 to 1912, until he moved to Boise in 1914 where he continued his practice until 1934. He was active in Democratic politics, serving as Chairman of the Democratic County Central Committee of Owyhee County. He also represented that county in the lower house of the state legislature in 1913. He married Mary Hicks on June 18, 1914; they had two daughters. In 1917 he was appointed a member of the state board of education, serving until 1919. He was President of the Idaho State Bar Association from 1932 to 1933. From June 1937 until his death in 1962 he was a Judge of the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Appeals. He received an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the University of Idaho in 1957. He died in San Mateo, California in 1962.

Scope And Content

The papers of William Healy span the years 1908 to 1913. Included in the case files are court documents, correspondence with clients, and also correspondence with his law partners in Boise who checked legal references and precedence for cases which he handled; there are also a few personal files most of which concern the Democratic party.

Arrangement and Description

The majority of the papers of William Healy were folded in document folders, but were in no discernable order. During processing the papers were removed from the document files, unfolded, and placed in acid neutral file folders; the original case file headings were retained. The folders were then arranged alphabetically. Papers which were originally unfoldered were usually letters or court documents dealing with cases which consisted of one or two items. These were arranged alphabetically in a general alphabetical sequence and placed at the end of the specific folders.

Some of the papers in this record group showed signs of water and rodent damage and a few of these had to be discarded.
