Mr. Myers began his life in Lynn Grove, Kentucky. After completing his formal education, Myers attended Cumberland College in Lebanon, Tennessee until 1909.
Shortly thereafter, he came to Fresno, California. Myers found employment with Holland & Holland, a real estate and land merchant firm in Fresno as a clerk; eventually moving up to agent. But Myer would not stay with Holland & Holland for very long. He enlisted in the U S Army in 1916, and was sent to Coblenz, Germany to participate in the occupational allied forces during 1917 and 1918.
Upon his return to Fresno in 1919, he became the manager of the Fresno County Detention Home. He was then an assistant Fresno County probation officer for 21 years. In 1942 he moved to Oregon where he had similar duties.
His son, Ernest Jr., perished in a Japanese POW Camp in 1945 at the end of World War II.
Ernest Myers was a member of and Master of Las Palmas Masonic Lodge No. 366 in 1926.
