Ethel Raybould (1899-1987), BA (First Class Honours in Mathematics) was UQ's first female Mathematics Lecturer (later Senior Lecturer).  She taught at UQ from 1928 - 1955.  One of UQ's most generous benefactors, her trust funds support fellowships, prizes and teaching facilities - the Raybould Lecture Theatre (opened in 1990) in the Hawken Engineering Building is named in her honour.
