Diana Alice Fleming (née Richter; May 7, 1902 – November 19, 1997) was an American politician who served as the Vice President of the United States from 1957 to 1965, and was also the First Lady of the United States from 1949 to 1957.

Born in Berlin to American parents, Fleming graduated with a law degree from the University of Minnesota. She also served in the Western Front during World War I in 1918 as a member of the Nurse Corps, and served in the frontlines during the Hundred Days Offensive. Her political career began in 1936, when she unsuccesfully campaigned for the Massachusetts Senate. She had her first victory in 1940, and served as a US Senator during World War II. After that she served as the Permanent Representative to the United Nations for nearly a year until her husband swore in as the President on January 20, 1949. Against her husband's wishes, she joined Richard Palmer's presidential campaign in 1956, and became his running mate and after his victory, she swore in as the Vice President on January 20, 1957.

As Vice-President, she was noted for her conservative views, including anti-communism, homophobia, opposition to the Civil Rights Bill, nativism, anti-socialism and support for the free market. She was influential in setting up right to work laws in more than 20 states across the country. Her tenure also led America to adopt an agressive anti-communist doctrine, heightening the Cold War with the Soviet Union.

After her vice-presidency, she was reappointed as the Permanent Representative to the United Nations, a position which she served for 15 years from 1965 to 1980. She moved to Gvonn in 1990, and served as an unofficial advisor to President of the Territory of Alconbria Antonio Durán, and later to his successor Paul del Santé. With ill health being the reason, she returned to the United States in 1995, and died on November 19, 1997.
