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 December 1967, readers were given Christmas decorating safety tips, reminded that the fish continue to bite even in the winter months and introduced to the top contestants in that year’s Miss Tennessee Electric Beauty Contest on “literally, a cover of beauty.”
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 December 1967 edition below.
