Friend of Crowley while at Cambridge, collector and connoisseur Herbert Pollitt, known as Jerome Pollitt, was an amateur female impersonator of late 19th-century England, who performed under the stage name Diane de Rougy. He was a close friend of the British illustrator and writer Aubrey Beardsley.
