What is the Story of Rudolph, the Reindeer?
“The most renowned reindeer of all,” Gene Autry sang about Rudolph to the glee of millions. The song “Rudolph” reached number one on the charts in 1949; the stop-motion animated adaptation of his story, which debuted in 1964, is one of the most notable and longest-running Christmas TV specials; and, according to polls, it is the “most beloved holiday films of all time,” with 83% of people choosing it over other Yuletide hits.
Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer, was the brainchild of a copywriter, Robert L. May, first published in 1939. May had been working for Montgomery Ward, a mail-order corporation and department store established in Chicago. During the holiday shopping season, the department store would usually give out coloring sheets to children.
He wrote a poem about an imaginary reindeer with a gleaming red nose, based on his childhood bullying memories. May was given the project during a, particularly traumatic year.
In July, his wife, Evelyn, died of cancer, and the widower found himself deeply in debt while raising his newborn daughter. Nevertheless, the beleaguered May was able to complete his holiday copywriting homework despite his difficulties, submitting a poem with a meter close to that of “A Visit from St. Nicholas.”
Shoppers were given booklets with the poem about Rudolph in 1939. 2.4 million free copies were distributed that year, with another 3.6 million allocated to Montgomery Ward customers in 1946. Surprisingly, in late 1946, firm president Sewell Avery gave May over the poem’s rights for the copywriter to get paid for his labor. Although Montgomery Ward closed in 2001, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is still one of the most well-known holiday characters in the world.
