Daisy Bates as a lone woman anthropologist in the l9th century was
concerned about conserving the culture of the aborigines which she
thought Europeans were on the verge of rendering extinct. She lived
among the a borigines formany years and collected valuable data about
their cultures which Radcliffe-Brown was said to have purloined. She had
given him these data on his promise to include her in his forthcoming
exhibition, but he also broke this promise. Ruby Rohrlich
