  Sorry for the delay, I had to dig into my files. The Buddhist Lodge was
founded in 1924 by Christmas Humphreys and Aileen Faulkner (his
future wife). It became independent as early as 1926. People that knew
him said that he remained an active theosophist to his death.
  An interesting point. I discussed this with a Nyingma buddhist, who did
not have a too high opinion of theosophy. He belonged to a red-cap line and
found it hard to digest one of HPB's favorite expressions  :-)
