Interesting you should mention that. Obviouly you were thinking of Mrs.  
Clinton, who was christened after first climber to Mt. Everest.
 
Interestingly, too, the following link reporting the Dylan-Putnam  event:

Note that the text reads:
 
           The university also gave a honorary title to
          Hilary  Putnam, a philosopheress ('filosofa')
           of Harvard.
 
--- Surely the writer thought 'Hilary' was a woman's  name. (cf. 
'Hilarious'). 

Cfr. 'Evelyn Waugh'.
