Edward Allan Pease (born May 22, 1951) was a Republican U.S. Representative from Indiana from 1997 to 2001.
Pease was born in Terre Haute, Indiana on May 22, 1951. He is an Eagle Scout and has been honored as an adult with the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award and Silver Buffalo Award; he is also a former Chairman of the National Order of the Arrow Committee, in which post he was succeeded by Bradley Haddock.
His tenure in Congress was defined by significant accomplishments such as increasing Indiana's share of transportation funding, increasing the investment in the US military, saving the historic downtown Federal Building in Terre Haute, Indiana, and serving on the House Judiciary Committee that introduced the articles of impeachment for President Bill Clinton.
After leaving Congress, Pease became senior vice president of government relations for Rolls-Royce plc North America.
Pease has been an active supporter of the American college fraternity movement, serving as national president of his fraternity, Pi Kappa Alpha, receiving the fraternity's Loyalty Award at the 2016 Convention, and as a two-term president of the North-American Interfraternity Conference and winner of its highest honor, the Gold Medal.
