who is this Donkersloot? This photo was taken on July 22, 1918, right after this baby boy Donkersloot was born.
In 1968 he was a Superintendent of the Rotterdam police force.

Pieternel Goeres-Slager came up with this information:

He was killed in an accident in 1937. His death was given great attention in the local newspapers:

Doctor Donkersloot was known for his vitality and good healthcare. None of the inhabitants of Overschie could remember him ever being ill. His only absence was during his annual vacation. He was a very well respected doctor.
He also was cofounder of the local First Aid group of the Dutch Red Cross organisation.
