Has the Linear Congruent Generator ever been used in any of the early crypto algorithms?

The Linear Congruent random number generator is the simplest kind of pseudo random number generator. I know that its now long broken. But I am curious -- has it ever been used in any of the early crypto algorithms, say 70 years ago? Or has it been used for basic statistical simulations from day one. I read somewhere that it was used in the old IBM-360 computers. I am curious what it was used for.
