Born: 1891, Soerabaja, Java.



Entered the employ of the K.P.M. (Royal Packet Co.) in 1913; since 1926 Sub-Chief of that Company, stationed at Batavia.



He evidently cultivated orchids in his private garden. One of them, Dendrobium devosianum J.J.Sm., was named after him. The plant was not collected by himself, but bought; dried material in Herb. Bog. [BO]. The same might be the case with Aerides odoratum from P. Telo (Batoe Islands).
