Joseph was a quarter-miler for Washington University (St. Louis) and the Missouri AC. Fleming placed fourth in the 400 at the St. Louis Olympics. According to race reports, Fleming cut off [George Poage] in the stretch as the latter was making a move for the lead, which may have cost Poage the gold medal. Fleming also competed in two non-Olympic, or demonstration, events during the 1904 Olympics. He ran on the winning Missouri AC team in the one-mile team handicap race, and he placed second in the Western AAU Championships. Fleming later worked for the Missouri Board of Election Commissioners.
