Were They On Noxon’s Enemies List?

During Richard Nixon’s presidency, members of his staff compiled a list of political opponents. As White House Counsel John Dean put it, the purpose of the list was to “use the available federal machinery to screw our political enemies.” In addition to the original list of 20 “enemies,” Nixon’s staff put together a larger collection of political opponents, which Dean presented to the Senate Watergate Committee in 1973. This list included various politicians, journalists, business leaders, celebrities, and institutions. Can you figure out who was on those lists?

I only got 42% correct (5 out of 12). Take the quiz.
