List Rules Notable members of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn

List of Famous Golden Dawn Members ranked by fame and popularity. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was a magical order that studied and practiced the occult. Wicca and Thelma are both influenced by the beliefs of the Golden Dawn. The organization is open to women and men, but holds similar initiations to that of Masonic Lodges. Here is a list of famous Golden Dawn members.

Who is the most famous Golden Dawn Member? Thelma founder Aleister Crowley tops our list. Crowley, who later became famous for his involvement with the Ordo Templis Orientis, was close friends with Golden Dawn co-founder Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers. The Irish poet and Nobel Prize winner William Butler Yeats was very involved in the early days of the Golden Dawn, but he resigned after conflict infiltrated the group.

Author Bram Stoker was believed to be a member of the Golden Dawn due to his interest in the supernatural, as well as his friendship with many Golden Dawn members. Irish actress Florence Farr was very involved in the group and even became Chief Adept after co-founder William Wynn Westcott left the organization.
