For the most part Van Deventer wrote about Dutch East Indian finance, the rights of the native officials and their education and about the sugar industry. When he was active as a journalist for the “Locomotief” he was particularly interested in Wagner and the Wagner Festival. As he was a member of the board of directors of the magazine “De Gids” most of his later articles were published there.
