I am afraid that unless your grandfather was Jewish (and from the surname I suppose he wasn't) you will not find nothing in the State Archives in Poland from Drohobycz. In the State Archives and Civil Registry Offices in Poland there are available records from these years only (mojżeszowe means Jewish, and rzymskokatolickie means Roman Catholic): http://goo.gl/3pW5e .
If you know that your grandfather was Roman Catholic you may want to try to contact Archdiocese Archives in Przemysl, but there is no guarantee that they will send you any reply. Address of Archdiocese Archives in Przemyśl:
Plac Katedralny 4 a,

I also have family from Drohobycz, but I have not had luck finding them. I still have a long way to go before I get to the point that you are right now.
There are some very helpful people at the genealogy forum of Ukraine.com: http://www.ukraine.com/forums/genealogy/
Maybe you obtain some clues there. Let us know what you find!
