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 September 1972 magazine featured boaters taking in the last days of summertime in Tennessee’s “unequaled scenery and recreational sites.” Inside, readers found stories describing the newest appliances and learned about electrical safety.
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 September 1972 edition online below.
