Jacobus ten Doornkaat Koolman was born in 1889 in Hamburg. He studied theology in Germany and, from 1911 to 1915, at the Amsterdam Mennonite Theological Seminary. Following graduation he served as a hospital chaplain in Solingen, Germany. Health reasons forced him to move to Davos (Switzerland), in 1919. In this, his second homeland, he served as pastor from 1920 in Schanfigg, Davos, and Otelfingen. From 1943 to 1954 he was the first full-time chaplain of the hospitals in the canton of Zürich.

He published numerous historical articles on Anabaptism in Amsterdam, East Friesland, and Zürich, and wrote the monograph, Dirk Philips: Vriend en medewerker van Menno Simons, 1504-1568 (Haarlem: H. D. Tjeenk Willink, 1964). He died 23 October 1978 in Zürich, Switzerland.
