ROBERT L. MAY started it all! He is pictured here circa 1964 with his daughters Betsy and Martha (Who appeared on a segment of CBS NEWS with me years ago). Robert actually wrote the story book for Montgomery Ward & Co. and he was the same age as I was when I wrote my MAKING OF RUDOLPH book :) He lived in Evanston, IL too...we are both from Illinois. He passed away in 1976 and this RUDOLPH pictured with him is now housed at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire.
