Tennyson Guyer (November 29, 1912 – April 12, 1981) was a member of the United States House of Representatives. He was a Republican from Ohio.

Born in Findlay, Ohio, Guyer was educated in the public schools of Findlay, and performed at a young age with the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus. He received a B.S. from Findlay College in 1934, and afterwards became an ordained minister. Guyer served as mayor of Celina, Ohio from 1940 to 1944, and later became a member of the state central committee from 1954 to 1966.

Guyer was the public affairs director for Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. in Findlay from 1950 to 1972, and was a member of the Ohio State Senate from 1959 to 1972. He was also a delegate to the Ohio State Republican conventions each year from 1950 to 1957, and was a delegate to the Republican National Convention in 1956.

He was elected as a Republican to the Ninety-third and to the four succeeding Congresses, serving Ohio's District 4 in the United States House of Representatives, and served from January 3, 1973 until his death from a heart attack on April 12, 1981 in Alexandria, Virginia.[1] While serving as Congressman in 1979, he led the Cocaine Task Force, committed to curbing the drug's use in the USA.[2] He was interred in Maple Grove Cemetery in his hometown of Findlay, Ohio and was survived by his wife Edith Mae (Reuter) Guyer, daughters Sharon Guyer and Rose Benedict, son-in-law Richard Benedict and granddaughter Jennifer Benedict.
