Reform Party leader, William Massey served as prime minister from 1912 until he died in office in 1925.

This dogged belief in the importance of farming meant that Massey regularly found himself off-side with other sectors of industry. The 1920s saw two royal tours take place. The first, in 1920, was the highly anticipated visit of Edward, Prince of Wales (the future King Edward VIII), who toured to thank New Zealanders for their contribution to the war effort.

The marks indicated a scuffle had taken place. Having identified Dorgan’s shoeprints, detectives took impressions of the other footprint. Other footmarks matching this one were found on the loose garden soil at the top of the stairway at the head of the right-of-way. A person had walked over the soil to the top of the garden. They then walked down the right side of the garden before leaving around the end of the iron fence at the edge of the cliff.
