Master list of Nixon's political opponents

A master list of Nixon political opponents was compiled to supplement the original Nixon's Enemies List of 20 key people considered opponents of President Richard Nixon. The master list was compiled by Charles Colson's office and sent in memorandum form to John Dean. Dean later provided this updated "master list" of political opponents to the Senate Watergate Committee.[1] The original list split out "Black Congressmen,"[2] listing "all of the Black congressmen [and women]."[3][4]

Carol Channing stated that inclusion on the list was her greatest accomplishment. Talk show host and journalist Lou Gordon, who was also on the list, considered his inclusion to be a "badge of honor".[5]

Likewise, Tony Randall found it something he was extremely proud of, according to Jack Klugman in his memoir on Randall.

In The Great Shark Hunt, Hunter S. Thompson expressed disappointment in not having been included on the list, writing "I would almost have preferred a vindictive tax audit to that kind of crippling exclusion."[6]

Carl Djerassi's autobiography The Pill, Pigmy Chimps, and Degas' Horse stated that President Nixon awarded him the National Medal of Science when he was on the Enemies List. Djerassi attributed his inclusion to the fact that he was an opponent of the Vietnam War. [7]
