University Archivist and Head of Archives (Professor)

Tamar manages the University Archives, Byrd Polar Research Center Archival Program and the Ohio Public Policy Archives. Since coming to the university, in 1998, as the Assistant University Archivist, she has concentrated on outreach and engagement in the broadest sense – strongly believing in the university’s land-grant mission of serving the public.

Tamar has given presentations on all aspects of university history, including the university’s founding, student traditions and activities, buildings on campus and OSU then-and-now. She is author of the book Time & Change: 150 Years of The Ohio State University. During spring semester, Tamar teaches the course “The Ohio State University: Its History and Its World.”
