Richard Nichols (April 29, 1926 – March 7, 2019) was an American politician. He was a one-term U.S. Representative from Kansas serving from 1991 to 1993 as a Republican.

In 1986, Nichols was stabbed by a man aboard the Staten Island Ferry while a tourist with his wife in New York City. He fully recovered from his wounds and was visited by Mayor Ed Koch in the hospital.[1]

Nichols was elected as a Republican to the One Hundred Second Congress (January 3, 1991–January 3, 1993), representing Kansas's 5th congressional district. He narrowly beat future FDIC Chairwoman Sheila Bair in the Republican primary.

Nichols died at his home in McPherson, Kansas on March 7, 2019 from respiratory failure at the age of 92.[2]
