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 1965, festive features included a television lineup complete with holiday specials on CBS, and gracing the vibrant four-color cover were “the three young ladies chosen as Miss Tennessee Rural Electric 1965 and her two alternates.”
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 December 1965 edition here.
