The New York Times ran the story on the front page for several days - you can download the pages on their website. They list all the surviors, what unit they are with, and the state and county they enlisted from. I learned of the Tuscania just by googling my husband's ancestor, Henry scarber - and there he was; a Tuscania survivor!

Also there is a great website dedicated to it I'm sure you've found by now - but also check out Gorell's history of the AEF on FootNote:

http://www.footnote.com/search.php?query=tuscania&f_ancestor_id=hTGGF7TC2&df_ancestor_id=Within%3AGorrell%27s+History+of+the+American+Expeditionary+Forces+Air+Service%2C+1917-1919

It's free (Gorell's history, I mean) - but HUGE! The link is for the search results for Tuscania. If that doesn't work, just search for Tuscania within Gorell's. It is full of contemorary first-hand accounts.
