Today's highlight in history for February 3rd

Today is Saturday, Feb. 3, the 34th day of 2018. There are 331 days left in the year.

On Feb. 3, 1943, during World War II, the U.S. transport ship SS Dorchester, which was carrying troops to Greenland, sank after being hit by a German torpedo in the Labrador Sea; of the more than 900 men aboard, only some 230 survived. (Four Army chaplains on board gave away their life jackets to save others and went down with the ship.)

Corrections: February 3, 2018

INTERNATIONAL

An article on Friday about polar bears’ metabolism misstated the amount of weight lost by some bears in the study. The bears that scavenged or fasted lost as much as 10 percent of their body mass, not 20 percent

NATIONAL

An article on Thursday about the Trump administration’s suspension of a major Obama-era clean water regulation misstated part of the name of an environmental group. It is the Natural — not National — Resources Defense Council.

OBITUARIES

An obituary on Friday about Andre Surmain, the founder of the Manhattan restaurant Lutèce, misidentified the critic who gave the restaurant its first four-star rating in The New York Times and misstated the year it was bestowed. Raymond A. Sokolov, not Mimi Sheraton, did so, in a review in 1972. Ms. Sheraton renewed the rating in 1980.

Errors are corrected during the press run whenever possible, so some errors noted here may not have appeared in all editions.
