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 August 1967, members relived the Youth Tour to Washington, D.C., for 22 young people from across the state (Tennessee cooperatives sent nearly 140 students on the 2017 Washington Youth Tour) and learned about efforts to electrify Vietnam in the final installment of a three-part series.
While our fashions, appliances and recipes have significantly changed since our first issue in 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 August 1967 edition below.
