I believe it was much earlier. How else can the wind and seismic forces which have been required since the 1930s be resisted?

Can anyone tell me which version of the Uniform Building Code began requiring wood sill plates be anchored to the foundation via anchor bolts?  (Section 1806.6 of current UBC).  Was it in 1972 or 1976?  I don’t have these codes as a reference so any input would be appreciated.
