Ernest Louis Schroeder, son of Christian W. Schroeder, town of Lincoln, was born near the village of Postville, Allamakee County, Iowa, February 2, 1896. He lived in that county up to 17 years of age, when he became a student of Oak Park Academy, an Adventist institution in Nevada, Iowa, through which he worked his way by serving as a helper at a sanitarium near the school. While a student, he was called into the army for service in the World War and received an assignment to the medical corps, in which he spent five and one-half months at Camp Pike in Arkansas. His studies were resumed in this school following his discharge from the army. Graduating in the spring of 1919, he entered the service of the Iowa State Adventist Conference as a licensed missionary, which work he followed a year and eight months, consisting mainly of musical directing and tent master duties at evangelistic meetings in Albia, Iowa, and assistant pastoral duties at various other points in that state. Next he spent about a year in the employ of a brick and tile company in Nevada, Iowa, and then embarked in farming near Chili, seven years ago. A year later he moved to a farm in Lincoln. His work as elder here extends back three years, previous to which time he served as the leader of the congregation two years. 

His wife, to whom he was married in an Adventist church in Lansing, Iowa, during July 1918, was formerly Miss Iola Van Buskirk. They have two children: Harold 9 and Dorothy 7. Mrs. Schroeder is a daughter of Peter Van Buskirk, Ames, Iowa. 

Politically, he is a Republican. His hobby is reading.
