Born: 1905, South Australia
Allan Brumby was a dogger in the north-west of South Australia in the late 1920's and early 1930's, 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 NB Tindale as a camel-driver on Tindale's anthropological expedition to the Mann Range. Brumby's collection in the South Australian Museum Archives comprises photographs of Australian Aboriginal people of the north-west of South Australia.
