Research initiated in 1909 by G. Leslie Adkin (1888–1964) suggested that the central Tararua Range on the North Island, New Zealand, was subjected to only limited alpine-style glaciation during the Late Pleistocene. This was based on the "U-shaped" cross-profiles in the uppermost parts of several valleys, and cirque basins. Adkin’s work remained the only published glacial research undertaken on the North Island’s axial ranges until the latter part of the 20th century, but was not met with universal acceptance by luminaries such as Charles Cotton
