Richard Steere Aldrich (February 29, 1884 – December 25, 1941) was a U.S. Representative from Rhode Island, son of Nelson Wilmarth Aldrich.

Aldrich was born in Washington, D.C. where his father was serving in Congress. Aldrich was a descendant of John Steere, one of the earliest settlers in Providence. Aldrich attended the public schools in Providence, Rhode Island. He graduated from Hope Street High School at Providence in 1902, from Yale University in 1906, and from the law department of Harvard University in 1909. He was admitted to the bar in 1911 and commenced the practice of law in New York City. He returned to Providence, Rhode Island, in 1913 and continued the practice of his profession. He served as member of the Rhode Island House of Representatives 1914-1916. He served in the State senate 1916-1918.

Aldrich was elected as a Republican to the Sixty-eighth and to the four succeeding Congresses (March 4, 1923-March 3, 1933). He was not a candidate for renomination in 1932. He resumed legal pursuits in Providence, Rhode Island, until his death there on December 25, 1941. He was interred in Swan Point Cemetery.
