Revision as of 20:14, 24 April 2011

This article is about the Power, with the forenames Norman Sandiford, an acquaintance of J.R.R. Tolkien. For the Power, with the forename Joseph, who encountered J.R.R. Tolkien in the 1950s, see Joseph Power.

Canon[note 1] Norman Sandiford Power (b. 1916) received his B.A. at Worcester College, Oxford, in 1938. He went on to be associated with the parish of Ladywood in Birmingham.[1]

Power attended J.R.R. Tolkien's invitational speech at the Lovelace Society in 1938.[2]

By the end of the life of Tolkien, they renewed their contact (at least one letter is recorded, see Norman Power 8 July 1973[3]):

"How strange that I had no further contact with Tolkien until the nineteen-seventies when I had already been Vicar of Ladywood for over twenty years. Tolkien began to write to me about his old homes, and then, with amazing kindness, about my own scribbling."
