Ohio State University President Michael V. Drake has announced the donation of the official papers of Congressman Patrick Tiberi to the university. Tiberi retired from the U.S. House of Representatives in January 2018 after serving for 17 years.

"I am grateful to former Congressman Pat Tiberi for donating these important documents to The Ohio State University," Drake said. "This collection details his impact on Ohio, the nation and our broader world – all while providing valuable insights into our country’s leadership and the institutions they represent. I am certain our students, faculty and other scholars will benefit from this generous contribution for years to come.”

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 a number of his bills on these issues signed into law. Prior to 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.

Tiberi’s papers will become part of the Ohio Congressional Archives ( administered by the Ohio State University Libraries. The archive seeks to obtain and make available to researchers the official papers of members of the state’s delegation to Congress.

The Tiberi collection will be open to students, faculty and the general public for research in 2023, after the papers are sorted and arranged.
