Actually, it was much more common for Spiritualists, rather than Theosophists, in the late 19th century and early 20th century, especially in the UK, to use pseudonyms in their writings on the subject, especially if they were professional people who feared ridicule.

Theosophy, Blavatsky, and use of pseudonyms
Typically people involved in covert activities and also those involved in
questionable activities hide behind pseudonyms for their own personal safety
and protection. Intelligence agents and many of the intelligence
interrogators as well as those who employ âharshâ techniques against bad
guys commonly use pseudonyms.
When theosophists start using pseudonyms, one is wondering why? What are
they afraid of? Blavatsky is the role model for theosophists. When someone
wants to write about Blavatsky or theosophy in todayâs world, and uses
pseudonym, one wonders what is going on?
Theosophists in cyberspace have come across couple of theosophists using
pseudonyms. Some years ago, one of them was identified with the help of
Still couple more are there using pseudonyms and write about theosophy and
Blavatsky on Internet Forum(s).
Recently, I was told by three independent sources, about the identity of one
of the pseudonymers and it happens to be a theosophist all of us know well.
If anyone has any more information about anyone in the theosophical circles
using pseudonyms, feel free to email the information to me at
