Otto Stellter

Otto Stellter (22 July 1823 - 21 August 1894) was a German jurist who went into politics, sitting as a member of the national Reichstag (parliament) (FKP) between 1878 and 1881.[1][2]

LifeEdit

Otto Theodor Friedrich Stellter was born at Königsberg in East Prussia. Between 1840 and 1843 he studied jurisprudence at the city's university and at the Frederick-William University (as the "Humboldt" was then known) in Berlin.[2] At Königsberg he was a member of the Pappenhemia student fraternity.[3] He qualified as a lawyer in 1849.[2] In January 1849 he embarked on a career in Königsberg as a lawyer and notary.[2]

In July 1878 he entered the German Reichstag (parliament), representing the third Königsberg electoral district which covered the central part of the city, and sitting as a member of the conservative National Party ("Deutsche Reichspartei").[1] As a parliamentarian he sat on several parliamentary commissions.[1] However, at the next general election, which took place in October 1881, he lost his Königsberg seat to Julius Otto Ludwig Möller [de] of the Progressive Party.[4]

Otto Stellter died on 21 August 1894 at Neuhäuser, a small town on the coastal strip of land separating the "Frisches Haff" (as the Vistula Lagoon was then known) from the sea.[1]
