For more than 50 years, The Tennessee Magazine has been the official publication of our electric cooperatives, keeping consumer-members informed about their co-ops, showcasing the wonders of electric service and highlighting the special events around the state.
The cover of the June 1971 magazine featured Bill Battle, University of Tennessee head football coach and state chairman of June is Dairy Month. Inside, readers learned about Pinson-area nonprofit Youth Town that “provides parental guidance and a homelike atmosphere for the youth of our state who need a wholesome environment.”
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. View the entire June 1971 edition online below.
