This volume was the hottest read of 1936. Compiled by the Treasury Department, it contained a list of all taxpayers who made more than $15,000 the previous year. Only a single copy, located in the Ways and Means office, was available for perusal. Nicknamed “the Sucker List,” it was both “the most eagerly read book in the capital,” and a headache for the committee. Although the list could not be mechanically copied or taken out of the room, visitors copied it by hand—and then sold the information.
