Albert Glotzer (November 7, 1908- February 18, 1999), also known as Albert Gates was a professional stenographer and founder of the Trotskyist movement in the United States. He was best known as the court reported for the 1937 John Dewey Commission that examined the Stalinist charges against Trotsky in Mexico City. Born to a Jewish family in Pinsk (modern-day Belarus, then part of the Russian Empire), Glotzer and his family emigrated to Chicago when he was four. Politically active since childhood, he was selling socialist literature on the street corners by age eight, and joined the Young Communist League at fifteen. In 1928 he was a founding member of the Trotskyist movement in the United States and was elected to the Communist League of Americas National Council at its founding conference in May 1929. He moved to New York to work at the new sects national office.
