Allan Brumby was a dogger in the north-west of South Australia in the late 1920s and early 1930s, collecting dingo scalps for the bounty paid by the government. Later he worked at Ernabella, a pastoral station in the Musgrave Range, which was owned by his uncle, Stan Ferguson. In 1933 Brumby was employed by Norman Barnett Tindale (AA 338) as a camel-driver on Tindale’s anthropological expedition to the Mann Range.
