Try the AISC Search Utility.  It list properties of a lot of historic beams including “B” shapes.  I believe you can download it or you can also install it from the new AISC 13th edition steel manual CD.

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?
