I believe Richard is right. It was always attributed to Russ Campbell -
reputed to be a creative genius and talked about in tones of amazement, It
was in like 68 or 69 when they were working in Mowanjum. He was gone by
1970; so I never met him. Kaze may know where he is, but I wouldn't be
surprised if she has no clue. It's been a while and the world has turned a
few times since.
