As a serious student of HPB's writings I am sure you hold her 
Teachers in great respect and possibly reverence, as she herself did.

Assuming that the 1900 letter from K.H. to Annie Besant is authentic 
("Letter from the Masters of the Wisdom", First Series), it contains 
perhaps an important piece of advice on the subject of your post:

"How few are they who can know anything about us. ... The cant 
about `Masters' must be silently but firmly put down. Let the 
devotion and service be to that Supreme Spirit alone of which each 
one is a part. Namelessly and silently we work and the continual 
references to ourselves and the repetition of our names raises up a 
confused aura that hinders our work…"

Let every student judge by himself or herself if the writings of the 
people listed on your post are useful or not. Indulging in the 
exercise you have proposed would certainly lead to more claims and 
counter-claims, with no greater wisdom gained by it.

Best wishes,
