About Ethel Raybould

Ethel Raybould (1899-1987), BA (First Class Honours in Mathematics) was UQ's first female mathematics lecturer. She was made a senior lecturer and taught at UQ from 1928 to 1955. 

She was one of UQ's most generous benefactors, and her trust funds support fellowships, prizes and teaching facilities.

The Raybould Lecture Theatre (opened in 1990) in the Hawken Engineering Building (Building 50) is named in her honour.
