"Say you are an institution founded in 1920. It is safe to assume that you
are not sitting on any information dated from before then; and so, in the
double-digit date-recording system, "20" becomes your pivot year. This
means that data containing a two-digit year between "00-20" will be treated
as post-2000, while years between 20-99 will be interpreted as referring to
the previous century.  "
