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.
The cover of the February 1969 edition featured 2-year-old Scott Robertson of Knoxville with his four-legged “referee.” Inside, co-op members learned all about Thanksgiving, including how best to carve the turkey—prepared, of course, in a new electric range.
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 1969 edition online at www.tnmagazine.org.
