Steel section properties

Title: Steel section properties

Help!  Anyone with a steel manual prior to 5th edition . . .

I have a building circa 1940 (toilet tank) with a colum and beam that i can not locate section properties on.

Beam is 24inch deep, flange width approx 7.5-7.75 inches, thickness approx 0.5-0.75. 
Column is 8 inch deep, 8.125 flange width, with about 1/4 to 5/16 flange thickness.
I think column is 8x8 (31lb), beam is big question mark.

This beam does not fit the American standard nor WF profiles in a 5th edition AISC manual.  Does it fit anything from the 3rd or 4th edition closer?  Does the column fit anything else any better than my assumption?

Thanks in advance
