Am researching and have heard that there is some family connection between E M Forster and Belfast, specifically Forster Green Hospital. Can anyone give me any more information on this? Thanks

Forster Green hospital is named after Mr Forster Green, who financed its building due to some bad family experience with Tuberculosis. He was a tea merchant, probably around 1850 - 1900. It as still possible to buy Forster Green tea in Northern Ireland in the 1960s, now .. I don't know.

When EMF unveiled a plaque to Forrest Reid in October 1952, a Mr Gotto greatly entertained the table at lunch.
Who was Mr Gotto?
