Trying to ID the font in this logo from a 1990 staff handbook

That ampersand looks very distinctive, but I can't place it and various online indentifiers don't match it.

The ampersand is almost like the one in Sacker's Square Gothic, but the angled extension needs to be made horizontal — a simple enough modification. The other two letters were from a squared sans style, with the lines added. I wonder why the spacing of lines in the D is uneven. Sometimes the ampersand is a merged 'Et', and maybe that's what they were going for, or maybe that was just going to be something unique about their logo.
