$\gamma$-ray production cross sections for proton and $\alpha$-particle interactions with $^{12}$C, $^{16}$O, $^{24}$Mg, and Fe have been measured in the energy range 5–25 MeV with proton beams and 5–40 MeV with -particle beams. Isotopically pure foils of $^{24}$Mg and foils of natural isotopical composition of C, MgO, and Fe have been used. $\gamma$-ray angular distributions were obtained with five high-purity Ge detectors with bismuth germanate Compton shields placed at angles of 45° to 157.5°. Cross sections for more than 50 different $\gamma$-ray transitions were extracted, and for many of them no data have been published before. Comparison of present data with data available in the literature shows mostly good to excellent agreement. In addition to the production cross sections, high-statistics, low-background line shapes of the 4.438 MeV $^{12}$C ray from inelastic scattering off $^{12}$C and spallation of $^{16}$O were obtained. Comparison with nuclear reaction calculations shows that these data place interesting constraints on nuclear reaction models.
