As far as I can tell, Rudolph was a Russian immigrant and worker at the Zinc plant, who lived in one of the many houseboats on Seaton Snook.  A quiet, kindly man, Rudolph would make rugs out of ships rope for his neighbours.  The piece is written as a pastiche of a Russian folk song, and appears to be designed to give the pupil a start in playing hands together.
