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 special events around the state.
Back in January 1966, readers learned tips to avoid electrical shocks, saw ads for cars and nurseries and were reminded of “value” of wives with their “intelligence, energy, skill at twelve different occupations and working 99.6 hours a week.”
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 January 1966 edition by clicking the cover below.
