THE ENIGMATIC JASON BISHOP III (a.k.a., Tal Levesque, a.k.a. TAL)
The only available photo (anywhere) of the enigmatic Jason Bishop III (a.k.a., Tal Levesque, a.k.a., TAL), one of the original promoters of the "Dulce Base" rumors. This photo was taken in 1990 in Los Angeles when he was filmed by Nippon Television program dealing with Area 51 in Nevada and Dulce, New Mexico. The two-hour program was shown only in Japan on March 24, 1990. He requested that his face be blacked out for the program. It is not an exaggeration to say that much of the original information that one reads on Dulce was disseminated by Jason Bishop. Jason Bishop claimed he worked with a Thomas E. Castello when he was living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, working in security for a private company. It was there that Bishop got to know the alleged Castello. Jason Bishop was one of the many fanatic readers of the original SHAVER MYSTERY in the early 1950s. He was deeply influenced by the SHAVER MYSTERY. According to Wikipedia: "Richard Sharpe Shaver (October 8, 1907 Berwick, Pennsylvania – c. November 1975 Summit, Arkansas) was an American writer and artist.
He achieved notoriety in the years following World War II as the author of controversial stories which were printed in science fiction magazines (primarily AMAZING STORIES), in which he claimed that he had had personal experience of a sinister, ancient civilization that harbored fantastic technology in caverns under the earth. The controversy stemmed from the claim by Shaver, and his editor and publisher Ray Palmer, that Shaver's writings, while presented in the guise of fiction, were fundamentally true. Shaver's stories were promoted by Ray Palmer as THE SHAVER MYSTERY."
