Institute Fills A Legal Post

NEW YORK - David T. Halvorson, former first deputy superintendent of the New York State Banking Department, has joined the Institute of International Bankers as deputy general counsel.

Mr. Halvorson, 40, resigned from the banking department June 19 following the nomination of Derrick Cephas as superintendent to replace Jill Considine, who resigned in May.

The New York-based institute represents 240 banks from more than 50 countries.

Saying No to Cheese

Born and raised in Kalispell, Mont., Mr. Halvorson returned home for a year after graduating from Harvard University.

He decided to go back to law school after finding that the only work available in his home town was making cheese for the local farmers' cooperative.

After graduating from the University of California at Berkley, he worked for the law firm of Sullivan & Cromwell between 1976 and 1981. In 1981, Mr. Halvorson joined the Bank of New York as vice president and counsel.

In September 1985, he joined the banking department.
