Paul Irvin Clymer was a Republican member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, where he represented the 145th Legislative District in Bucks County. First elected in 1980, he served in the seat until January 6, 2015.

After high school, Clymer attended Muhlenberg College, where he served in the ROTC and earned a degree in Economics in 1959. Following graduation from college, he spent four years in the U.S. Army on active duty. Clymer worked as a credit manager at Lankenau Hospital between leaving active military service and his election to the House.

Clymer served as chairman of the House Education Committee. He was also a member of the House Gaming Oversight Committee and has been an outspoken critic of the legalization of gambling in the state, urging for more regulation in the industry.
