Pseudonym: Levister, Paul
Sept-Oct. 1963: Goodpasture writes during the 70s in her Mexico City History that during 1963, the deputy chief at FI, Ronald MacMillan sent Walter Jessel to see the finest technical ops of the Agency. At this point MacMillan was either the new chief of FI-D, and hence one of C/WH/FI Warren Frank's deputy chiefs, or Goodpasture was a little inexact as MacMillan was still Harvey's deputy chief until at least Oct 1963.
10/2/63 memo for Chief, Foreign Intelligence: The officer I assume is Levister reported back on LIENVOY and LIFEAT upon his return Oct. 2.
10/8/63: Chief of Station Win Scott wrote that Paul Levister went to Mexico City between Sept 22-Oct. 1, 1963 "to consult with LIENVOY and LIFEAT case officers in preparation for a report to be written on the two projects as examples of tap operations which produce both positive intelligence and operational leads."
10/11/63 memo: This is the last document sent to FI-D with Presland/Harvey's name on it. It is about QJWIN. This undated note from a secretary says Presland is no longer the proper addressee on these Luxembourg notes about QJWIN.

Oct 1963: In Levister’s review of LIENVOY, he noted that the monitors did a good job with transcription, but that “the native staff has been unable so far, with sporadic exceptions, to accompany those results with the all-important analysis for intelligence information, collation for compilation of meaningful comprehensive reports, and keener reporting”. The four monitors, LIENVOY-4, 5, 11, and 12, were highly motivated.[ 58 ] They would cross-file excerpts of the take by the name of target persons, by the names of their principal contacts, and by the target persons’ telephone numbers, as well as by the chronological file for each target line. This allowed them to judge the probable value of conversations in the light of past conversations between correspondents. One monitor in particular was very good in isolating intelligence. He became the head monitor and office manager, answering directly to the civilian in charge. His command of English also made him very helpful.[ 59 ] This may have been the monitor who made the short summaries of interesting conversations for the resuma, described below. Journalist Ron Kessler wrote that two of the Mexican monitors who handled the Oswald calls to the Soviet consulate commented to intercept center chief Flick that the caller had a hard time making himself understood in either English or Russian.[ 60 ] When the “Oswald caller” was addressed by the Soviet officer in English, the caller responded “please speak Russian”. Even Goodpasture referred to him many years later as “the man who called himself Oswald”. It is a fair bet that some of the monitors are still alive today – and that they either heard the Oswald call or heard about the Oswald caller. Their names exist, but are redacted on the documents available at the Mary Ferrell site.
12/30/63 review of LIFEAT and LIENVOY projects by KUTUBE/Ops, written by Levister. He referred to LIENVOY as ZRJOINT because the US and Mexico security officers worked on it together - he referred to LIFEAT as ZRSOLO because it was "a unilateral tap" conducted solely by the US.
