Default Who is Katherine Hillyer?

What did Katherine Hillyer do after she saw Red Haussman drive a Willys-Overland scout car up the steps of the nation's capitol?

She asked a bystander what it was, who answered "it's a Jeep".

Then she wrote a story about it in the paper, which coined the name Jeep and made it national.

I knew the story but not her name, so I guess I get half credit?
