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.
In the February 1968 edition, readers were welcomed by a snowy farm scene, found tasty recipes that highlighted hamburgers and hotdogs and, in a sign of the times, learned how to impress that “special man” with “household hints that might help you to remain ‘that extra special girl.’”
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 saw 50 years ago in The Tennessee Magazine. View the entire February 1968 edition below.
