Adelaide University Field Anthropology: Central Australia No. 1 - Introduction: Descriptive and Anthropomertic Observations (T.D. Campbell & C.J. Hackett, Transactions and Proceedings of the Royal Society of South Australia, Vol. LI, 1927) The party left Adelaide on December 30, 1926 and returned on January 19, 1927. The localities at which observations were made were: (1) Ross Waterhole on Macumba Station, and about 40 miles north-east of Oodnadatta (2) Stuart Town, Central Australia (Alice Springs area) The aboriginals subjected to detailed examination were nearly all members of the Arunta tribe, the remainder being chiefly Luritchas. With a few exceptions, all examined were full bloods (in so far as careful discrimination could effect) and adults.
