The following information was submitted in October of 2006 by Tony Scott:
A Glendale, California resident and sculptor, Foerster was commissioned by
the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra to sculpt a bust of Beethoven in
honor of William Clark, founder of the Orchestra. The sculpture is located
in the Public Art Division of Cultural Arts Department. Foerster suggested
the idea of an astronomical monument be erected and he, along with a handful
of other sculptors designed and created the monument that now sits in front
of the Griffith Park Observatory in Los Angeles.
Foerster was married to
Willa Holt Wakefield, a well known New York singer as the turn of the
century in 1915; they divorced in 1936.
