SS Tuscania carries Idaho County men; Commemoration of 100 years since sinking set for Feb. 5 at GHS

Thousands of miles from Idaho County, an historic tragedy tied Idaho to Ireland. On Feb. 5, 1918, the SS Tuscania was torpedoed and sank at nightfall in the Irish channel. On board was a large contingent of Idahoans, including men from Idaho County and Kamiah. Of these men, William I. Droogs of Mt. Idaho was killed in the incident, as was another Idaho man, John C. Robinson of Potlatch. They were Idaho’s first combat fatalities in World War I. “This is a very significant event to Idaho and our county,” said Idaho County Historical Society member Floyd Whitley of Cottonwood, who has researched the event and created a PowerPoint presentation. A program commemorating the 100th anniversary of the sinking will feature this Monday, Feb. 5, 6 p.m., at Grangeville High School. Admission is free, and the public is encouraged to attend the event, which will also include live period music performed by locals.
