Where could a person find information on a 1920s-1940s steel oil barrel which seems to have been made by Standard Oil Co for Polarine oil with patents marked on it from 1905 1909 1911 and 1916?

We are building a Conoco museum which started out as Marland Oil, then Standard Oil Company by E.W. Marland. Contact The city of Ponca City, OK and ask somebody about who is in charge of the research or you can contact the Oklahoma Historical Society.
