Francis L. Fassitt was an American expatriate based in Continental Europe for much of his adult life. He attended school (college?) in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1875-79. In 1892, he was notably runner-up to Jean Schopfer in the men’s singles event at the second edition of what became the French National Championships.
Francis L. Fassitt appears to have lived permanently in Europe from 1898 onwards; he did not pursue a profession. In later life his mother, Mary Louise Fassitt, (née Mortimer; 1840-1920), settled in Nice on the French Riviera due to health reasons. His father, Dr Louis Fassitt (1826-83), was a native of Philadelphia and a physician by profession.
