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 November 1971 magazine featured a scenic autumn photograph of Montgomery Bell State Park. Inside, in addition to articles showcasing life-changing benefits of electrical appliances, members read about the history and educational offerings of Harrogate’s Lincoln Memorial University.
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 1971 edition below.TTM-00549
