For more than 50 years, The Tennessee Magazine has been the official publication of our electric cooperatives, keeping member-owners informed about their co-op, showcasing the wonders of electric service and highlighting the special events around the state.
Back in October 1965, readers could browse the latest advancements in electrical appliances and learn who took the crown as Miss Middle Tennessee Electric (a pageant that remains a highlight of the co-op’s annual meeting).
While our fashions, appliances and recipes have significantly changed since 1958, our mission to entertain, educate and inform our readers has not. Here’s a glimpse of what members 50 years ago saw in The Tennessee Magazine. View the entire October 1965 edition online here.
