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.
