José Maria (Jack) Braga lived in Macau and Hong Kong for most of his life. Aware that the long-established Portuguese colonial culture in which he had grown up was fast vanishing, he began to record it in a large collection (consisting of some six thousand monographs and a wealth of other materials), that was acquired by the National Library of Australia in 1966.
