The game comes with a First Player tile, but I'm not sure why it is useful. The end game is triggered by the first person to complete 8 or more assignments thus giving everyone one extra turn.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

If you take the 1st player marker to the 2nd level basement in the Smithsonian science building, find the door marked "EMPLOYEE ONLY" (note the typo), knock, and show your marker, saying "Eric and Kevin sent me." you'll get access to the real Library of Congress.

Alternately, it may have been used in a previous iteration of the game and got left in accidentally. It's one of those two explanations, I'm sure.

I generally throw the first player tile and a couple random tiles in the bag and then have the players draw to determine turn order.

What rabid said! That is totally why it was left in the game and not because it was used in an older version of the rules.
