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 November 1968 edition, electric cooperative members found an ode to the latest electrical advancements. “And as we recount the blessings we enjoy in rural and urban homes in Tennessee, surely among them will be found many of the portable electric helpers,” the introduction read.
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 November 1968 edition below.
