For nearly six decades, 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 the special events around the state.
Back in May 1967, co-op members were treated to a feature on an East Tennessee farm’s electrically heated and cooled “hothouse,” learned how to achieve the ideal kitchen arrangement and read about “A Modern Rural America” according to Vice President Hubert Humphrey.
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 50 years ago saw in The Tennessee Magazine. View the entire May 1967 edition below.
