This biography from the Archives of AskART:
In 1908, Hilda Ward had a book published with the title of The Girl and the Motor.  A review of the book had the following:  "Hilda Ward, a twenty-year old artist living on Long Island, New York, was among the first women to produce a written account of her fraught journey into motoring knowledge.  Her book, The Girl and the Motor, provides an invaluable description of a young woman's painstaking and self-conscious struggle to acquire mechanical confidence.

Published in 1908, The Girl and the Motor recorded not only Ward's desire to drive automobiles but her determination to understand, maintain, and repair them as well.  She wrote in a lighthearted and breezy style, which mixed self-deprecating humor with ruling-class confidence.  Her book included sketches of her repairing her car that bore captions such as "Depended on No Mere Man" or "My busy Day."  In spite of the flippant air she adopted for much of the book, Ward's account of sexual difference in automobile technology was a serious one, as she poignantly articulated the ways that her journey toward technological competence was very different from the one her friend and rival "Mere Man" could assume."
