Nothing comes to my mind, but I will mention that it is worth checking (and requesting) at Macintosh Garden if you don't get an answer here.

They have a forum: https://macintoshgarden.org/forum

Generally speaking, the best place to locate obscure software is Macintosh Garden:

I took a moment to scope out LinkedIN, but there was no sign of him there.

The Open Library microfilm scanner continues to scan, and they've just uploaded a bunch of "Byte" issues from 1983 through 1986. Probably some interesting Macintosh stuff in there.
