Also -findit metagraph-

Forest is of course right as Roger says, but it would have been Baron, not Professor, Forrest: Sir John Forrest (1847-1918) was the first premier of Western Australia and the first Australian raised to the British Peerage (though not for services to statistics, alas).

I think

findit forest plot

is the correct spelling. A forest plot is so called because the
bottom-line summary confidence interval is like a forest, and the
individual study confidence intervals are like the individual trees. It
is not named after a "Professor Forrest".
