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

Internet theosophists.

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 Let us all out these hiding theosophists.
