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....


Also, summer of 1942, Leading Comics #3, had the Seven Soldiers of Victory fight a villain with a time machine who first brought criminals and conquerors to the present and then fled to the past. The following year, the Dummy (foe of the Vigilante) used a time machine to send the members to different time periods.
