Rip Hunter might have been the first one to make a career out of it starting in 1959, Showcase #20.

But the villain Per Degaton had a time machine back in 1947 in a story that has been referenced and followed up on many times, All-Star Comics #35.


I can take it further back by offering All-Star Comics #10, mid 1942, which has a story focusing on a possible Bomb Defence Formula for the war effort and a connecting time-travel plot reaching to the 25th century. This might well be the first time-travel story in a DC comic, so far as I am aware Superman didn't learn the ability until the latter part of the 1940's, which leaves only Jay Garrick:The Flash as an obvious possible contender....
