An Englishman living in Geneva, H.P. (Henry?) Devitt became known for having taken charge of the first official match of the German national team.

attire
In that match, Devitt wore his normal clothes and even a hat (it was raining). One of the German players actually thought he was a spectator and asked him to leave the field.

convenient
Being not really Swiss perhaps made him convenient to lead matches at home in Switzerland, in fact matches at home in Switzerland were the only matches we could find with him as a referee.
