He is best remembered as a founding member and top leader of the Communist Party of Germany and as the leader of that party's fraction in the Prussian Landtag. A political opponent of Ernst Th lmann, Meyer was moved out of the top party leadership after 1928, not long before his death of tuberculosis-related pneumonia at the age of 43. Ernst Meyer was born in 1887. Meyer studied economics and philosophy at the University of K nigsberg, from which he received a PhD in 1910. Meyer joined the Social Democratic Party of Germany in 1908, while he was still a student in college, beginning to write almost immediately for Vorw rts, the SPD's official daily newspaper. In 1911 Meyer was promoted to the position of the economics editor of 'Vorw rts. At the time of World War I, Meyer took his place on the extreme left of the SPD, along with Rosa Luxemburg, Karl Liebknecht, Franz Mehring, and Clara Zetkin
