Firmin Grubb was the long-time and well-known police chief in Kent, Ohio. He twice garnered national media attention, once in Ripley's "Believe It Or Not" newspaper strip for surviving a pistol shot at close range during an arrest. He survived because the bullet stuck in his belt buckle!

Firmin was the son of George W. and Lydia Ebie Grubb. He was the father of Harold Grubb by his first wife Anna Schrader Grubb, who died in the influenza epidemic of 1918. He then married Rose White Grubb.
