The Gamut Arts Club was a leftist cultural organization led by Hendrik Glintenkamp (1887–1946) and Isobel Walker Soule (1898–1972). Printmaker and illustrator Glintenkamp was a regular contributor to The Masses and later worked for the WPA. Soule, a social worker, journalist, and labor organizer in the Transport Workers Union, published The Vigilantes Hide Behind the Flag (International Labor Defense, 1937), an attack on antilabor organizations.
