ARTIFACT: Minty 1940's Mobil 7 years Safe Driving Award with red Pegasus at top. In 1935, Socony Vacuum Oil opened the huge Mammoth Oil Port on Staten Island. In 1955, Socony-Vacuum was renamed Socony Mobil Oil Company. In 1963, it changed its trade name from "Mobilgas" to simply "Mobil", introducing a new logo (created by New York graphic design firm Chermayeff & Geismar). To celebrate its 100th anniversary in 1966, "Socony" was dropped from the corporate name.

During US involvement in World War II, April 29, 1942, Socony's unescorted tanker, named Mobiloil, was sunk by a German U-boat and all 52 people survived after 86 hours adrift in lifeboats.
