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.

In the March 1966 issue, co-op members read an article about the perils of rural residents in California who had no access to central-station electricity, urging Tennesseans to “not lose sight of the fact that most states are not as electrically blessed as is the Volunteer State.” Another feature highlighted the kitchen’s evolution brought about by the advent of electrical appliances.

Here’s a glimpse of what members 50 years ago saw in The Tennessee Magazine. View the entire March 1966 edition below.
