  THOMAS J. McMAHON - MEDAL OF HONOR RECIPIENT
McMahon distinguished himself while serving as medical aid man with Company A. When the lead elements of his company came under heavy fire from well-fortified enemy positions, 3 soldiers fell seriously wounded.
McMahon, with complete disregard for his safety, left his covered position and ran through intense enemy fire to the side of 1 of the wounded, administered first aid and then carried him to safety.
McMahon's undaunted concern for the welfare of his comrades at the cost of his life are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit on himself, his unit, and the U.S. Army.

 McMahon's small miracle - The Boston Globe
McMahon, who died a few years ago, in his 50s, from complications following routine abdominal surgery, was himself a marvel, a remarkable mind.
One of the highest recommendations, then, for "McKay's Bees" and for McMahon's fiction generally is as a reminder.
At the time of his death, one of the things McMahon the scientist was wondering about was how insects move miraculously up walls and along ceilings.

 Engineer of Fictions  -  Harvard Magazine (July-August 2004)
Following McMahon's death, relatives discovered among his papers the 30-year-old manuscript of a novel composed while he was a graduate student at MIT.
The title character of McMahon's early foray into extended fiction is an inventor immured in a dark Cambridge house after a heart attack (a conceit some close readers have adduced as evidence that the author secretly anticipated his own heart problem).
McMahon's prose is filled with similar blends of fanciful improvisation and scrupulously explained processes.
