It might be advisable to contact the Formulary and ask Bud Wilson if he can recall. Maybe they still make it?!
Agree with Michael above that it sounds like a pyro formula.
I know Sandy King's Pyrocat can be used as divided developer, meaning two baths, but that developer is a pyrocatechin developer, not pyrogallol, and leaves the negs with more of a brown stain and hadn't been invented yet 'years ago' anyway, but it kind of leaves the door open to wonder whether there are other two bath pyro developers out there.
