I’ve got some drawings from 1940 calling out steel “B” shapes.  I could list the ones for which I need properties, (about 10), but I thought I would try to get a manual off of eBay.  Presently, I see a 1930, its says it’s a AISC 1st edition, and a couple of 1948 manuals, 4th edition?  Would those be close enough?  Would I need a manufacturer’s manual?
Check the AISC site for old sections--I think you can get those properties for free. I have a 1961 edition of the AISC Handbook that lists 'B' shapes, termed miscellaneous beams and columns.
