Lucius William Nieman (December 13, 1857 – 1 October 1935) was an American businessman and founder of The Milwaukee Journal.

Born at Bear Valley in Sauk County, Wisconsin, he attended Carroll College. In 1882, he founded The Milwaukee Journal and became majority owner and editor-in-chief.

The Nieman Foundation for Journalism was established after his widow, Agnes Wahl Nieman, left Harvard University $1 million in her will in 1937.
