Wiki says he taught at WIU but nothing about him being a WIU alum.

John Mahoney attended Quincy University (then called Quincy College) earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1966.

Undergrad at Quincy University, but "The Emmy Award nominee received his master's degree in English from WIU in 1976 and an honorary doctorate from Western in 2003." He established a scholarship for English masters students at WIU: http://www.wiu.edu/cas/english/graduate/mahoney.php
He also hosted workshops at the Chicago Steppenwolf Theatre for WIU Theatre students and helped host events for area alumni there as well: http://www.wiu.edu/Alumni/EventPhotos/2009/steppenwolf/

‘Frasier’s’ John Mahoney never forgot his days at WIU.

Just saw that the auction house in Hamilton will be auctioning off many of his memorabilia as the person in charge of the auction was related to him.
