The collection is organized in four subgroups: Standard Oil Company, Mobil Corporation, Exxon Corporation and Exxon Mobil Corporation. Due to size, the finding aid has been divided into several separate parts. Copyrights, Patents & Trademarks, 1912-1974 (0.4 ft.) This sub-series consists of foreign trademark registration ertificates, renewals, correspondence, translations and clippings for trademarks granted to Standard Oil Company of New Jersey and its foreign affiliates, particularly Standard-Vacuum Oil Company. All registrations contain brief descriptions of the petroleum products or logos being registered. Trademark registrations for Esso products cover regions in Europe, Asia, and India. Some of the trademark certification for Exxon products issued in Vietnam (1956-1974) document the change of the company’s name from Standard-Vacuum Oil Company to Esso Standard Eastern Oil Company and finally to Exxon Corporation.
