Hugh McCutcheon (Peter) SPENCER1

(1905 - 1981)
Father*Percy SPENCER b. 1860, d. 1944
Mother*Lucy Charlotte NUTTER b. 1866, d. 1948
Hugh McCutcheon (Peter) SPENCER was born in New Zealand on 10 June 1905. He was named after his father's best friend McCutcheon, but known as Peter due to his mother referring to him as her 'little Peterkins.2,3'

He finished his primary school education at King's College Lower School in 1917 and went on to Auckland Grammar School until 1923.4

After studying at the University of Auckland he practised as a public accountant (APANZ) in Queen Street and in 1945 established a branch in Otahuhu. An enthusiastic sportsman, he played club cricket, hockey and tennis, and is thought to have been a founding member of one of the Auckland alpine or tramping clubs. He was also on the committee of the Waitemata Motorcycle Club and secretary of the Auckland Chess Club. During the Second World War he assisted with the accounts of the Patriotic Appeal, was involved with first aid (St John Ambulance) and served as district commander of the Home Guard's One Tree Hill Unit.

In 1945 Wairoa solicitor and bryologist George Osborne King SAINSBURY (1880–1957) described a new moss that he had collected at Waihohonu on the southern slopes of Ruapehu on 24 February 1942. He named it Dicranoweisia spenceri, the species "after my friend Mr H M Spencer, a companion on many collecting expeditions". In a 2019 taxonomic revision it was transferred to the genus Kiaeria, but the epithet spenceri was retained.4

He married Joyce CONNETT in New Zealand in 1948.5

Hugh died on 5 July 1981 in Remuera, Auckland, at age 76.2,6,7 He was cremated on 8 July 1981 at the Purewa Cemetery.7
