For the sake of the software and that article I point out that the
nothing that could be called UTC existed before 1960, the term UTC was
not used until 1965, and not generally known until the mid 1970s.
For years in the 1930s the concept of converting time to UTC is barren.

The term UT itself was not endorsed by the IAU until 1928, and not
commonly used before the 1960s when the Greenwich observatory was no
longer active to provide GMT.
