Taimni and Dion Fortune in my youth. Although I have absolutely no interest in these traditions now, I agree that their part in bringing Buddhist ideas to the West is an interesting topic for discussion, but wince at the idea that either Theosophy or the occult could have any relevance to Western Buddhism now.

A Buddhist is someone who takes (note present tense) refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
