In Eigen Haard, of which very popular weekly he was the editor for many years, he published numerous articles, a few of them concerning Dutch Mennonite history.
Jeronimo de Vries was a trustee of the Algemeene Doopsgezinde Sociëteit 1886-1911, curator of its seminary, secretary of the Haarlemsche Vereeniging, and on the board of a number of non-Mennonite associations; e.g., co-director of the Teyler Foundation and trustee of the Nederlandsche Protestantenbond (Dutch liberal Protestant union), being a co-editor of its hymnal in 1882.
