Earl and Gertrude graduated, married, and decided to move to Shenandoah. The pull of the local economy was great and Earl chose the nursery business over practicing law. He naturally decided to learn from a master and joined his father-in-law's company. For the next several years, Earl applied his life experiences and strong work ethic in learning the trade.

When he felt he was ready, and with the financial backing of E. S. Welch, he founded the Earl May Seed and Nursery Company in 1919.

Using radio to entertain and promote, Earl's leadership grew the mail order business to a point where over two million catalogs were mailed annually. Radio advertising helped boost catalog sales. Mr. May not only acted as the chief broadcaster, he continued to write copy for the catalogs. Earl passed away in 1946 but family still manage the company. Betty Jane Shaw, Earl May's granddaughter, is the current president.

Ponds, arbors, trellises, paving stones, portable greenhouses, you name it, it's available at Earl May. (Bury a beloved pet recently? They have pet grave-marking stones, too.) Yes, the prices on these things will probably be a little bit higher than what you'll find at the local discount store.

But the quality justifies the higher price. These items won't fall apart the first year. Or the second. Or the third.

However, Earl May's broadcasts, a nice mix of musical talent and agricultural information, became quite popular and so in June of 1924, WOAW and May Seed and Nursery announced the construction of a remote studio in the company's administration building. Using telephone lines to connect to the WOAW transmitter sixty miles away in Omaha, the May studio was perhaps the longest remote radio connection of the day.

I called back several times over the next three months and was told they were not in yet. After speaking to the manager, I was told, "If we haven't called you they are not in yet." After that surly comment I never called back and they have not called me in 14 months.
