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.
Back in June 1967, readers saw ads touting energy-saving home improvements, learned about repairing and maintaining the family car and marveled at the talents of “the young folks” whose artwork was featured on Uncle John’s Page (as in magazine editor John Stanford).
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 50 years ago saw in The Tennessee Magazine. View the entire June 1967 edition below.
