In the interim, May married a fellow Montgomery Ward employee and became a father again, but he still struggled financially.

2011 Rudolph Saves Christmas

In short order, May licensed a commercial version of the book along with a full range of Rudolph-themed merchandise including puzzles, View-Master reels, snow globes, mugs and slippers with sheep wool lining and leather soles. After Bing Crosby reportedly turned down the chance, singing cowboy Gene Autry recorded the song, which sold 2 million copies in the first year and remains one of the best-selling tunes of all time.

The song and merchandise sales made May financially comfortable, but hardly rich. After leaving Montgomery Ward in to manage the Rudolph commercial empire, May returned to his former employer seven years later. He continued to work as a copywriter until his retirement.

A little reindeer named Rudolph, with a big shiny nose. Bob finished the book just in time to give it to his little girl on Christmas Day. The general manager of Montgomery Ward caught wind of the little storybook and offered Bob May a nominal fee to purchase the rights to print the book.

Wards went on to print, Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer and distribute it to children visiting Santa Claus in their stores. By Wards had printed and distributed more than six million copies of Rudolph. That same year, a major publisher wanted to purchase the rights from Wards to print an updated version of the book. The book became a best seller. Many toy and marketing deals followed and Bob May, now remarried with a growing family, became wealthy from the story he created to comfort his grieving daughter.

Rudolph came to life in when the Chicago-based Montgomery Ward company asked one of their copywriters, year-old Robert L. May, drawing in part on the tale of The Ugly Duckling and his own background he was often taunted as a child for being shy, small, and slight , settled on the idea of an underdog ostracized by the reindeer community because of his physical abnormality: a glowing red nose.

Looking for an alliterative name, May considered and rejected Rollo too cheerful and carefree a name for the story of a misfit and Reginald too British before deciding on Rudolph. Montgomery Ward distributed 2.
