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.

Back in June 1966, readers saw advertisements for products like the largest refrigerator on the market, were invited by Gov. Frank Clement to “discover more of Tennessee” and given the opportunity to supplement their income by raising chinchillas.

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 June 1966 edition below.
