There is complete coverage of the Bell Labs journal family in the TUG
archives at

I find several mentions of the 5ESS in the years 1984--2000:

MariaDB [bibtex]> select filename, label, substr(title,1,60) from bibtab
    ->     where (title like '%5ESS%')
    ->      and (filename like 'bstj%')
    ->     order by filename, year, label;
