* UE Emeriti Professor of Engineering William Hartsaw Has Died

Dr. William O. Hartsaw, emeriti professor of mechanical engineering, died Tuesday, November 18, at his home in Evansville. He was 93.

He was preceded in death by his wife Delma. He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Mark and Elizabeth Hartsaw, and grandsons William David and Nicholas Hartsaw.

Funeral services will be at 11 a.m., Friday, November 21, at Methodist Temple, with burial at Bethel UMC Cemetery south campus in Washington, Indiana. Visitation will be today from 4-7 p.m. at Alexander East Chapel in Evansville, and Thursday from 10 a.m. until service time at the church.

Memorial contributions may be made the Dr. William O. and Delma Hartsaw Engineering Scholarship at the University of Evansville.

Hartsaw joined the faculty of the University of Evansville (then Evansville College) in 1946 as an instructor. In a 2006 interview for UE Magazine, he recalled that he thought he would only stay a few years before going to work in the private sector. But then, he said, something unforeseen happened – he discovered that he loved teaching.

He stayed at UE for 46 years until his retirement in 1992, progressing to professor of engineering and becoming the school’s first dean of engineering. During his tenure at UE, he helped build the department into a four-year program with a co-op option. His success in obtaining the first accreditation of the school’s engineering department by the Engineers’ Council for Professional Development was just one of his many recognized services to the University. In 1985, the University named him “Distinguished Professor” – a tribute bestowed on longtime faculty members who have made outstanding contributions to their professions.

Several of Hartsaw's students, including Dick Blandford, David Mitchell, Paul Funk, Jim Giles and Doug Stamps, went on to become professors at UE. Others went to work in local industries, or in such internationally known companies as Boeing. Several have worked for NASA. His son Mark is also a graduate of UE's mechanical engineering program and took classes with his father.

Hartsaw's own pursuit of higher education was interrupted by World War II, when he joined the U.S. Army Air Corps, After the war, he went back to school, earning his engineering degrees from Purdue University. Later he received his Ph.D. in theoretical and applied mechanics from the University of Illinois.

* University of Evansville Theatre Opens Macbeth, the Scottish Play

The University of Evansville Department of Theatre proudly presents William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, opening Friday, Nov. 14, at 7:30 p.m., in Shanklin Theatre. Additional performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 15, 20, 21, 22, and at 2:00 p.m. on Nov. 16 and 23.

Shakespeare’s darkest tragedy combines supernatural elements with barbaric ambition, in this keen examination of evil. Against the backdrop of the 11th century, the power-hungry Macbeth is tempted by the prophecies of three witches, spurring his overwhelming desire to be the King of Scotland. Along with his frighteningly manipulative wife, this mad desire leads them both into a nightmarish world of evil, deceit, and murder. Monstrous actions run rampant, as he and Lady Macbeth lose themselves to unstoppable urges of savagery and political atrocity.

John David Lutz, professor of theatre and department chair, directs Macbeth. Associate professor Eric Renschler serves as the scenic designer; professor Patti McCrory is the costume designer; assistant professor Stephen Boulmetis is the lighting designer; professor Diane Brewer is the dramaturg; professor Chuck Meacham is the sound designer; guest artist and UE alumnus Diego Villada is the fight choreographer; and Alexis Richards, a senior from Denver, Colo., serves as the associate lighting designer.

The cast features Ben Anderson, a senior from Los Angeles, Calif., in the title role, and Emily Daly, a senior from Milwaukee, Wis., as his conniving wife. The 35-person cast also features Anders Neirheim, a senior from Minnetrista, Minn., as Duncan, and Christopher Hailey, a senior from Friendswood, Texas, as Macduff. The three witches will be played by Olivia Hebert, a senior from Arlington, Texas, Devin Fluker, a junior from Las Vegas, Nev., and Jasmine Maletta, a sophomore from Chesterton, Ind.

Ticket prices are $15 for adults and $13 for senior adults, students and UE faculty and staff. UE students may obtain one free student rush ticket beginning at noon on the day of the performance they wish to attend.

Including Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the rest of the season features Dancing at Lughnasa, by Brian Friel, Feb. 20 through Mar. 1; and A Streetcar Named Desire, by Tennessee Williams, April 17-26. Tickets may be purchased by calling (812) 488–2031, Monday through Friday, noon-5 p.m.

Info You Should Know

* Lane Closures Entering U.S. 41 & Lloyd Work Zone

Lloyd Expressway traffic should watch for temporary lane closures upon entering the U.S. 41 interchange work zone as contractors perform temporary paving.

With the early arrival of winter temperatures, contractor Ragle Inc. is aggressively preparing for an upcoming traffic shift before the deep freeze sets in. Drivers should continue to expect delays and consider alternate routes as occasional lane closures are expected to last through next week.

Temporary traffic pattern
In early December, crews anticipate shifting Lloyd Expressway (S.R. 62/66) traffic south such that two lanes in each direction will share the existing eastbound lanes. Westbound traffic will cross the median using the temporary pavement being installed at each end of the work zone.

During future traffic phases, existing looping ramps from Lloyd Expressway to U.S. 41 also will be closed temporarily for reconstruction. Exiting traffic familiar with merging right will temporarily merge and turn left at a traffic signal.

While temperatures do limit the types of work that can be performed, construction will continue this winter as weather permits. Indiana Department of Transportation contractors will remove old pavement and move dirt for new ramps so they are ready for paving in the spring.

Follow INDOT on social media at or for construction updates and traffic alerts, or access INDOT’s TrafficWise Traveler Information Service at  

About the U.S. 41 & Lloyd Cloverleaf
Over about one year, Ragle Inc. of Newburgh will reconfigure the U.S. 41 and Lloyd Expressway interchange into a full-cloverleaf design, which will remove two stoplights from the Lloyd Expressway. INDOT and Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke broke ground on the $19.1 million project in October.

Traffic on U.S. 41, Lloyd Expressway and the ramps connecting the two will be maintained with traffic shifts and lane closures. To minimize hazards for workers that are digging and moving dirt, electrical service to overhead lighting has also been deactivated during construction.

In addition, Weinbach Avenue remains closed at Division Street for installation of a storm sewer. Lloyd Expressway entrance and exit ramps at Weinbach Avenue remain open, but traffic is limited on where they can turn.
