Albert Spear Hitchcock, botanist, took many photographs while researching and collecting specimens for the Smithsonian Institution Archive in Asia, South America, and the southern United States between 1918 and 1924. In 1921 he was in Macao. Hitchcock not only took photographs of specimens and colleagues, but while visiting these nations, he also documented skylines of bustling ports like Macau, landscapes and the lives of people in these communities.
