H.P. Blavatsky and K. Paul Johnson
K. Paul Johnson's studies on the life of H.P. Blavatsky and her relation to the Mahatmas pretty much caused the "History of Theosophy"-website (of which this site is a descendant) to be necessary. His work is acclaimed among historians but unpopular to the extent of being ignored among members of the theosophical organisations. The articles under the headings of "H.P. Blavatsky and K. Paul Johnson" "Theosophy as a political movement" and some of the articles under miscellaneous have been inspired by his work or are a critique or comment on his work.
