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.
Members thumbing through the January 1967 issue read a recap of the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association’s annual meeting, which featured a speech by Washington Youth Tour Essay Contest winner Barbara Hinton, and could send away for a collectible color photograph of Tennessee Gov. Buford Ellington.
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 1967 edition below.
