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 special events around the state.
Back in May 1966, readers saw advertisements for electrical appliances like window air conditioners and chest freezers, learned about group health protection and saw how they could win valuable prizes, including a vacation cottage.
While our fashions, appliances and recipes have significantly changed since 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 May 1966 edition below.
