All Rights Reserved Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer started out as a little booklet given free to children by the Montgom- ery Ward Company. Early in 1939, the adver- tising department of Mont- gomery Ward decided to make their own Christ'— ‘mas-themed booklet to give to children. Robert May, an ad writer in the department, oftengcame up with a good limerick. He was assigned to come up with an animal ‘. story that was cheerful and happy, However, there were discouraging things going on. Our countryiwas still in the Great Depression and there were rumors of war in Europe. Robert’s wife had cancer‘and medical bills had put the family in debt. Robert accepted‘ the assignmentanyway. The poem “‘Twas The Night Before Christmas” gave Robert the idea that a reindeer should have the leading role. Also, his four year old daughter, Barbara, loved reindeer as her favor- ite animals at the Chicago Zoo. ' They lived in Chicago. Three walk-in clinic locations to better serve you.

Columnist : Some nights, they would have a thick fog coming off of Lake Michigan. Robert had the idea of a misfit reindeer with a nose that glowed. Because of his abnormality, the other rein— deer didn’t like him, but his glowing nose made it possible to navigate through a dense fog. What if there were a dense fog on Christmas Eve? This misfit reindeer could guide the other reindeer and sleigh so that Santa could travel and make his annual Visits. This is how the story turned out. What would be a good name for this misfit reindeer - Rollo, Reginald, Rodney, Romeo? Robert chose Rudolph for the name. As Robert worked on the Rudolph story in July 1939, his wife died of cancer. His boss offered to let someone else Work on the story, but Public Records Marriage License - Paige Elizabeth Clare and Matthew Thomas Dowdy Jeffery Allen Kramer and Mandy Carol Edwards Yuri Andre ,Hupka and Emily Ann Patten Barry Dalton Bachman and Kathryn Elizabeth Turner Brianna Nicole Reichert and Ishmael Sarafum Gilmore Divorces Asked Daugherty, Kirk Wayne V.

I need Rudolph now more than ever.” In the story, Rudolph was taunted by the other reindeer for his red nose. Robert put some of Rudolph’s inferi- ority feelings into the story from the tale of “The Ugly Duckling” by Hans Chris- tian Andersen and from Robert’s own childhood when schoolmates teased him for being small and shy. ' Robert said that he and Rudolph were somewhat alike. As a child, Robert was frail and poorly coordi— nated. He was never asked to play on school athletic teams. The Rudolph story went to press and, during December 1939, Montgomery Ward gave away nearly 2.4 mil- lion copies at their 620 retail locations. World War II caused a paper shortage and the booklets were not printed again until 1946 when 3.6 million copies were given free to children as an adver- tising promotion. ' Robert May remarried.

' The song is still one of the favorite tunes of all time. Television and other media also feature the song and story. My Aunt Tillie Fiala joined the Women’s Aux- iliary Army Corps in 1943. That fall, she was here at Goodnight on furlough and‘she gave me a copy of Montgomery Ward’s Rudolph booklet. I enjoyed It. For seven years, I didn’t hear anything about Rudolph. Then, in 1950, I_ heard the song on the radio and remembered the book- let I had read back in 1943. The Rudolph song and story give lessons about' overcoming obstacles, accepting peopleuand rec- ognizing everyone’s unique potential. “Each of us is good for something.
