Former U.S. Rep. Patrick Tiberi’s congressional papers, housed in the Ohio Public Policy Archives at The Ohio State University, are now open to students, faculty and the general public for research. Tiberi donated the papers to the university in 2018 when he retired from the U.S. House of Representatives after serving for 17 years.

The Patrick J. Tiberi papers are accessible for consultation on-site only, in the designated reading room. Appointments can be made by emailing

The goal of the Ohio Public Policy Archives, administered by the University Libraries, is to make available for research and educational use unique and historical materials documenting the workings and history of the U.S. Congress, the participation and contributions of Ohio members, and the impact of the U.S. Congress on the state of Ohio.

“I was honored to represent central Ohio during my time in Congress, and I’m pleased to be able to share these materials with Ohioans who are interested in learning more about our nation’s democracy,” Tiberi said. “I am grateful for the role The Ohio State University Archives has played in record keeping for these materials – and many others – so our congressional history can be preserved for the benefit of future generations of students, researchers and leaders.” 

A graduate of Ohio State who was a member of the Ohio State Marching Band, Tiberi was elected to represent Ohio’s 12th Congressional District in November 2000. He served on the House Ways and Means Committee and chaired the Joint Economic Committee.

During his years in Congress, Tiberi focused on legislation related to tax reform, economic policy, trade agreements and health care, and saw several bills on these issues signed into law. Before his election to the House, Tiberi worked as an aide to then-Congressman John Kasich before serving in the Ohio House of Representatives from 1993 to 2000, where he rose to the position of majority leader. Tiberi was also a Realtor before being elected to Congress.

Tiberi received the 2015 Excellence in Public Service Award from the John Glenn College of Public Affairs in recognition of his strong legislative accomplishments and contributions to public service in Ohio and the nation. After retiring from the House, Tiberi became president and CEO of the Ohio Business Roundtable.
