From Tolkien Gateway
Canon[note 1] Norman Sandiford Power (31 October 1916 - May 1993) received his B.A. at Worcester College, Oxford, in 1938. He went on to be associated with the parish of Ladywood in Birmingham.
Power attended J.R.R. Tolkien's invitational speech at the Lovelace Society in 1938.
By the end of the life of Tolkien, they renewed their contact (at least one letter is recorded, see Letter to Norman Power):
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.
