The Mayne Medical School commemorates Dr. James O`Neil Mayne and Mary Emelia Mayne, benefactors of the University of Queensland.

James and Mary Emelia Mayne became the principal benefactors of the University of Queensland giving it 280 hectares of land at Moggill for agricultural education in 1923. After negotiations beginning in 1926, they paid a further £63,000 to resume over 281 hectares at St Lucia. This site became the current University of Queensland campus.
