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.
On the cover of the March 1969 edition, electric cooperative members saw a striking nighttime photo of the State Capitol. Inside, they met members of the 86th General Assembly, learned about Miss TECA Donna Sue Reece of Crockett County and discovered how electric appliances were making rural life easier.
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 March 1969 edition below.
