For more than 50 years, The Tennessee Magazine has been the official publication of our electric cooperatives, keeping member-owners informed about their co-ops, showcasing the wonders of electric service and highlighting the special events around the state.
In the July 1968 edition, members read about Tennessee youth seeing President Lyndon Johnson and the Washington, D.C., sites on the Rural Electric Youth Tour, were asked whether there’s such a thing as being too patriotic and saw a pitch touting the convenience of an air conditioner you could carry to another room.
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.
