Albert E. Glock (September 14, 1925 in Gifford, Idaho - January 19, 1992 in West Bank) was an American archaeologist working in Palestine, where he was murdered.

Glock's parents were deeply religious Lutherans of German ancestry living in Illinois. Albert Glock studied at several universities, graduating in 1951 at Concordia Seminary and receiving Master's degree from the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago in 1963.

Glock, as a Lutheran missionary, came to Israel in 1962 to work on excavations of Ta'anach, an ancient Canaanite city in south of Jezreel Valley . He had spent 17 years in Jerusalem and the West Bank, first as a director of the Albright Institute for Archaeology and then as head of the archaeology department of Birzeit University, where he helped to found the Archaeology Institute.

On January 19, 1992 Glock was shot when going to work. Neither reason for the murder nor who did it was reliably identified.

Albert Glock was an Associate Editor of Walid Khalidi's encyclopedia of the Palestinian villages destroyed in 1948, 'All That Remains'.
