Leo W. O’Brien was born in Buffalo, Erie County, New York on September 21, 1900. He graduated from Niagara University in Niagara, New York in 1922. He pursued a career in journalism and worked for The International News Service, The Albany Knickerbocker Press, the Albany Times-Union and other newspapers. He was a newsman and radio and television commentator in Albany for 30 years.

A Democrat, O’Brien was elected in 1952 in a special election to fill Representative William T. Byrne’s seat after Byrne's death. O'Brien was subsequently elected for a full term and then returned to Congress for the next six terms, retiring in 1966. O'Brien first represented the 32nd Congressional District, and, after redistricting, the 30th and later the 29th.

O'Brien was a member of the House Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs and led the Statehood for Alaska and Hawaii movement. He sponsored legislation to create the Fire Island National Seashore and also supported plans to protect the Hudson River. O'Brien was later chair of the Albany County Planning Board and the Adirondack Study Commission.

O'Brien died at 81 years of age on May 4, 1982 and was survived by his wife, son, and eight grandchildren.

The Leo W. O’Brien Papers document his service in the U.S. Congress representing Albany, New York. The O’Brien Papers consist of subject files, the largest series, correspondence, and communications containing newspaper clippings and speeches. Researchers should note the many materials focusing on O’Brien’s interest in Alaska and Hawaii statehood and governance of U.S. territories, including Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Please note that O'Brien's predecessor Representative William T. Byrne created the earliest materials in this collection from 1939 and the early 1940s. O'Brien retained select papers of Byrne's, filed them and later added his own materials on the same subjects to the files.

The collection is organized into the following series:

All series are arranged alphabetically by subject.

Leo W. O'Brien donated his papers to Syracuse University in a series of acquisitions between 1966-1969. In 2006 the papers were transferred to the M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives.
