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 March 1972 magazine featured another wildlife painting by Ralph J. McDonald. Inside, readers learned more about the talented Tennessee artist, read about Capitol International Airways moving its headquarters from Delaware to Smyrna and discovered the many ways electricity provides solutions around the home.
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 1972 edition online below.
