Collision between the White Star Liner Baltic and SS Standard

Hello, all...

I am trying to learn a bit more about the incident involving the near head-on collision betwwen the White Star liner 'Baltic' and the Oil Tanker 'Standard'in a heavy fog in off Fire Island, NY in 1910. The Standard was owned by the German-American Petroleum Company. I am trying to discover:

(1) Did the Standard survive the encounter? I find nothing definitive that says she made it back to port. If so, was she repaired or scrapped?

(2) Did the Baltic indeed lose a crewman in the collision, as was suggested in one account? If so, what was his name?

(3) Did the injured crewman on the Standard survive his injuries?

Of course, if you have any questions for me, fire away!

Thanks,

-Daniel
