DANIEL S. MAHONY, LT, USN
Daniel Mahony '97
Date of birth: December 22, 1873
Date of death: August 10, 1909
From the 1897 Lucky Bag:
Daniel "died at Mare Island, Cal." on August 10, 1909. He was stationed at the Navy Yard there. Unable to determine an exact cause of death, but it was most likely not operational: the Baltimore Sun reported (three days after his death) that he had orders to the Naval Hospital "to continue treatment."
The Register of Alumni gives only his date of death.
He is buried in Michigan with his parents.
He was an usher in a wedding of his classmate in 1903.
Memorial Hall Error
Daniel's name is spelled "Mahoney" in Memorial Hall; however, it is spelled without the "E" in Lucky Bag. He was an editor of the Lucky Bag. (It is also spelled without an "E" in the Register of Officers and on his headstone.)
More significantly, though, illness is not a criteria for inclusion in Memorial Hall.
