The John F. McMahon Lecture was created in 1980 by Alfred University alumni to honor Dr. McMahon for his contributions to ceramic science and engineering. Each year, a distinguished ceramic scientist or engineer delivers the lecture and receives the John F. McMahon Award. Appropriately enough, the first lecture in the series was delivered by Dr. McMahon. The McMahon Lecture is presented each fall semester during undergraduate seminar. See more information about the McMahon Award Lecture.
