Biographical Note

Foppe Martin Ten Hoor was born 19 February 1855 in Haulerwijk, Friesland, the Netherlands.  His theological education was at the Theological School of Kampen.  His ministry in the Netherlands included the following churches: Genderen, 1880-1884; Opperdoes, 1884-1888; and Franeker, 1888-1896.  He received a call from the Oakdale Park Christian Reformed Church in Grand Rapids and served that congregation from 1896-1900.  A year after his ministry at Oakdale he began to serve as editor of de Gereformeerde Amerikaan (1897-1916).  In 1900, he was called to the Chair of Systematic Theology of the seminary in Grand Rapids.  Here he occupied the chair until 1924 when he was almost seventy.  He passed away 21 March 1934. Ten Hoor had been married to Elizabeth Petronella Kok since 1880.

Ten Hoor served on denominational committees, which included the committee on the divorce question and the committee on South Africa.

Although not all agreed with his theological views, they respected him "for his intellectual acumen and never doubted his sincerity."

Our collection includes bound volumes of his theological works as well as many notes on theology.  We have theological books on our shelves as well as a variety of theological thoughts in notebooks and slips of paper.  His years of service were when the Dutch language was used.
