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 July 1972 magazine featured the beauty of the Smoky Mountains. Inside, members learned about all-electric mobile homes, read about space-age electrical kitchen conveniences and found a patriotic essay commemorating our nation’s 196th birthday.
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 July 1972 edition online below.
